Yam Drive Shows JISD Giving Spirit

Each year the JISD Police Department orchestrates a district wide canned yam drive and this year it was a spectacular success.  More than 6,000 cans of yams were collected. This was started years ago as a way to help out the annual Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner that is hosted to feed more than 25,000 people who are elderly or those in need.  The contest involved JISD schools, and several of the district's departments.  This year the contest had a new winner! Check out all the generosity below...more pictures to come.

1st place: Converse ES with 2,409 canned yams

2nd place: Elolf ES with 1,642 canned yams

3rd place: Olympia ES with 1,249 canned yams

Congratulations and thank you everyone!

Chief Ramon Helps Out At Port A.

If you talk to JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon for very long, you know that the Texas coast means a lot to her...especially Port Aransas.  It's a favorite R & R spot...a place to break away from all the police work she does.  When Harvey hit the coast, Chief went to the coast along with other members of the HAPCOA (Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association) and VFW Posts from Universal City and Lytle. Hauling and unloading supplies that families in the area were really needing was the mission at hand.  They delivered.    

A big thanks goes out to Chief Ramon and everyone who helped out representing the open hearts that want to help those who have lost so much.

Board Recognitions 8-18-16

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 Ramon Receives State Award

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.
