Wagner ROTC Busy In Competitions

Wagner ROTC's Armed, Unarmed, Color Guard and Physical Training Teams have been putting their skills and discipline to the test lately in 3 area competitions...Stevens H.S., Clark H.S. and Central Catholic H.S.  They started their day at "O-Dark-Thirty" in the morning to get their uniforms and equipment ready for each big contest.  These are tough competitions because they are expected to perform a specific drill sequence for each event scored by active duty personnel.  The female color guard finished 3rd place at Stevens H.S. and the female physical Training Team finished 1st at Stevens and 1st at Clark H.S.  Congratulations to these cadets for representing their school so well.

 

 

 

 

 

Wagner ROTC Military Ball At Randolph AFB

It's good to put the old comfy-clothes aside for the evening and really get spiffed up bit.  The 9th Annual Wagner ROTC Military Ball was a special occasion just for that.  The event is totally cadet led and they chose to make it a very formal event. Guys wore their formal military uniform (white shirt and bow tie) and the girls sported a nice evening dress.  The Cadet Battalion Staff was introduced and the colors were posted to kick off the event.  They had some great food and the ceremonial cutting of the cake capped off the dinner with the highest ranking cadet and the lowest ranking cadet together making the first cut to symbolize that every single cadet, no matter what their rank, is necessary to make the battalion successful. The highlight of the evening was provided by Kim Wagner-Hudson (LTC Karen Wagner's sister) who crowned this year's Military Ball court with the help of the Sabre Team.  The event wrapped up with some dancing...with SFC Harper stealing the spotlight with some pretty slick moves on the dance floor.

 

 

 

    

 

Judson JROTC Meets RAFB General

When you have a chance to meet a person who is tops in a career or field that you're really interested in, you take it, right?  The Judson AFJROTC was invited to meet General Edward A. Rice, Jr. (Ret.).  General Rice,  the former Commander of Air Education and Training Command at Randolph Air Force Base, was a special guest speaker at Northeast Lakeview College in conjunction with Black History Month.  His presentation took a practical look on accomplishing goals without excuses...no matter what obstacles may come.  Afterwards, the cadets were given a few minutes to meet General Rice and talk with him.  It's not every day you get to meet a Four-Star General.  Many thanks to General Rice and Northeast Lakeview College for this great opportunity. 

Military Fair At Wagner

San Antonio is referred to as "military city" and Judson ISD is in the heart of it being sandwiched in between Randolph AFB and Fort Sam.  Wagner High School hosted a "Military Fair" recently for all students interested in the many fields that military service offers.  The event was open to students during lunch so they could explore the potential of each branch of the military and see if it might be a good fit.  It also offered some fun too as students showed off their strength on the chin up bar and pushup station for prizes.  Recruiters were on hand to answer questions about all the careers in each form of military service and to raise awareness of the armed forces leading up to Veterans Day.  Thanks to Carol Faragher, Wagner's ROTC and College Center staff.

 

 

Wagner ROTC Gets Boost From Sebastien

One of Judson ISD's better known students and a huge singing talent Sebastien De La Cruz showed he has a big heart too.  Sebastien showed some of the ways he gives back to the community at a Wagner ROTC Parent Booster meeting. He presented a $500 check to help support the Wagner Cadets.  The program is very thankful for his support...including his sister Shania who is a Cadet and a member of the Armed Drill Team.
