Every year The San Antonio Stock & Rodeo show holds an annual western art contest. This contest is open to approximately 90 school districts within the state of Texas, and is a unique opportunity for High School students to earn college scholarships through art.

His sculpture "Horse balancing on a cactus" will be on display at The Briscoe Western Art Museum during the month of January 2019. What a talented young man!

Jingle Bell Jamboree Is Right Around The Corner!

The Christmas Season has officially started and for many people the typical gift giving is not good enough.  We're not talking necessarily spending big bucks, but there's going to be a great variety of unique gift items at this year's Jingle Bell Jamboree at a range of prices.  There will be a buffet of over 70 vendors with all sorts of ideas for that someone who might be a little difficult to please or know what to give. And the event always has great student performances of great Christmas music that make the whole event more fun and festive.  It's at Wagner High School Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 10 am to 3 pm.  Not only will the gift ideas and the music be great, but it's also a great way to support the Judson Education Foundation!

Judson Voices Sing In New Men's Choir Event

On Sunday, Nov 18th, the Judson High School Men took part in a brand new festival for male choir students at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. This event, called “Boys To Men” was presented by the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio, and featured choirs from local middle and high schools. Special guests were two professional San Antonio men's choirs, Illumen and The Marcsmen. The concert culminated in a 400-voice choir conducted by Dr. Ryan Garrison of the CCSA, Dr. Gary Seighman of Trinity University, and Judson’s own choir director, David Short! The Judson men shined on stage and showed Rocket Pride throughout the day-long clinic. Way to go Judson Choir

Patriot String Students Claim Region Spots

Students from Veterans Memorial have been accepted into the 2018 Region 12 Orchestra. Junior violinist, Vastian Sitler made 9th chair 1st violin in the Philharmonic Orchestra. Junior violinist, Brenna Carlson is in the 1st violin section and freshman Jesse Vargas made 5th chair 2nd violin in the Symphony Orchestra. These students have worked very hard and earned a spot in these orchestras through a highly competitive audition against students in several school districts. Symphony is the most challenging level as these students perform professional symphonic music. These students will be representing Veterans Memorial HS for the first time in Region 12. Last year in Region 11, VMHS had eleven students qualify for region. Switching to a new region adds a higher level of difficulty. Region 12 Orchestra will have a concert on December 1, 2018, at Reagan HS @ 6:00 pm.
