The Judson ISD Police Department has again teamed up with the JISD Maintenance Department to make this year's Yam Drive happen. It's amazing the generosity that comes out when this drive kicks off. The collection of yams helps out the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner each year that helps out so many people. A big thank you goes out to all the students and parents that contributed to this cause. Also appreciation to the JISD Maintenance Department that did a lot of the heavy lifting of collecting all those cans of yams.
When they were collected, members of the San Antonio Fire Department came out to pick them up for delivery. Below are the Yam-pions of this year's Yam Drive!
1. Olympia ES (1,704)
2. Elolf ES (595)
3. Wagner High School ROTC (435)
4. Rolling Meadows ES (415)

Board recognitions usually take a break during the summer time just because most everyone goes different directions during the break, but JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon has been busy this summer. She was recently recognized by the Texas School Based Law Enforcement with a very prestigious honor. Because of her impact here and beyond, at its recent state conference, the TxSBLE recently awarded her with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This is a pioneering award that recognizes law enforcement officers who have established and sustained efforts toward keeping schools safe and secure. The JISD Board of Trustees wanted to recognize Chief for this achievement. Congratulations to her and the JISD Police Department.

JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon has been helping keep our students and staff safe for years now and her contributions to school safety even go beyond the district boundaries. Because of her impact here and beyond, at its recent state conference, the Texas School Based Law Enforcement (TxSBLE) recently awarded her with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This is a pioneering award that recognizes law enforcement officers who have established and sustained efforts toward keeping schools safe and secure.
Chief Ramon has built her 20 year career not only around knowing the law as it applies to school safety, but also consideration and professionalism with student and staff that has been returned with deep appreciation and respect from them. She has been with Judson ISD for 14 years and even recently took her experience and perspective to the White House participating in a special panel discussion that focused on women and the criminal justice system. We congratulate Chief Ramon on this recognition and express thanks for all she has done for the safety of our campuses and her contributions to law enforcement.

Since 2010 Judson ISD Chief of Police Teresa Ramon has been at the helm of the district's security efforts. Her work and attention to staff and students and their safety is what makes her standout among her peers. She has been recommended by her professional association to participate on a White House panel focusing on women and the criminal justice system on March 30th. Chief will bring a load of experience...20 years...to the panel and is currently serving as the 3rd Vice President of the National Board of the Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA). She is a great choice to serve on this White House panel and we know she will represent Judson ISD well. Congratulations.
