JEF Gala: The Video Of A Great Evening

 

If you didn't get a chance to join the fun at the 2019 Judson Education Foundation Casino Royale Gala, then you missed a great time. The night of dancing and gaming at the different tables and the live auction all made it a special evening for a great cause.  So in case you couldn't be there, here's a slice of that wonderful evening that raised money for our teachers and students.

This Casino Night Was Not A Gamble, It Helped JEF

When you think of a casino, you might think of a group of winners and losers at the blackjack or roulette tables, but it wasn't the case at the Judson Education Foundations Gala. One of the foundation's biggest fundraisers of the year took on a different theme and different location this time around. The University of the Incarnate Word's Sky Room was the venue while the theme featured a Casino Royale motif and gaming area. The casino idea was one that played up to people's enjoyment of playing games. With real dealers, chips, and game tables, the fun and the chance was authentic, but nobody came out with a loss.  The big winners were teachers and students who will benefit from the foundation's grants and scholarships that will be awarded later this year.  

  

Then, of course, there was the Hall of Honor. Always one of the big draws each year, the induction of the new members of the Judson ISD Halls of Honor is always special.  This year the district received close to 20 nominations that the selection committees reviewed, discussed and voted on. This year three members entered the Athletic Hall of Honor and one entered the Civic Hall of Honor.  Coaches Sterling Jeter, Jimmy Dykes, and Melvin Boelter went in on the athletic side, while Dr. Melinda Salinas entered on the civic side.  

Along with the great food, dancing, prizes, auction items, it was a wonderful night of fun, food, and games...all to help our students and teachers. A total coming soon!

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!

Thanksgiving Community Feast Has New Tradition

The Thanksgiving Community Feast has been hosted by Judson ISD for many years and it just keeps getting bigger. A new tradition has grown out of this already wonderful event. It's called the Wobble and Gobble 5K Run.  The race will start at 8 am at Judson High School with a clearly marked race route through the City of Converse.  Then when the runners have cooled down, they can join the rest of the community for the annual Thanksgiving Community Feast afterward.  It's a great event each year that involves so many volunteers and workers.  Every time the table is set for this meal, around 2,000 people gather to enjoy the great food and student performances.  We look forward to seeing you there.
