Career Expo 2019: A World Explored

Exploring career possibilities and seeing what sparks one's interest is an exciting prospect to young people.  The JISD Career and Technology Department put together a great opportunity for all of your secondary students to explore, ask questions and generally get information from an array of businesses, agencies, and branches of military service. And the students showed up in force.  This year it was hosted at Veterans Memorial High School in the cafeteria. Parents, students and even those just curious about a new career showed up.  What a great event.



Rutledge Is Site For Special Event

JISD Special Olympics is a district-wide sports program for children with intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities, providing athletic training and competitions to 350 athletes from 27 JISD School. 

On April 16, 2019, 335 Judson ISD Special Olympic student/athletes were joined by 250 Student volunteers participated in Day 1 of our 15th Annual Track & Field competition at Rutledge Stadium.  Day 2 will take place Wednesday, April 24, 2019, with Field Events and relays. Thanks to our outstanding student volunteers, sponsors, teachers, nurses, bus drivers, and Special Olympics coaching staff the event was another example of the BEST of Judson ISD!  

Our athletes trained for 8 weeks and were more than ready to show what they are capable of doing. Our athletes displayed determination, courage, and enjoyment in their individual quests. But more importantly, there were new friendships formed and old friendships renewed, as the student volunteers and athletes encouraged and supported each other. 

In the 2019-2020 school year, we will form our first Unified Sports Teams. Judson High School Bowling Team will partner with our Special Olympics athletes at Area 20 and State Competitions.  Unified Sports Teams provide more meaningful interaction for our students as they work cooperatively in competitive situations. We invite ALL of Judson ISD to join us as we work, play and live UNIFIED!

Career Expo 2019-Your Future Awaits!

Judson ISD's Career and Technology Education Department is always actively seeking new opportunities and pathways for our students to successfully enter the workplace.  One of the big opportunities each year is the annual Career Expo.  Last year more than 40 businesses, technical schools, military branches, and career agencies attended and talked with students.  Think about it, when you take the robust training and certifications the District's CTE program provides in more than 30 areas and combine it with an event like this. That's a recipe for success.  This year Veterans Memorial High School will host the event on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, from 6:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. So join us to see where your future could lead you.
