Walmart Supports Education With Donation To JEF

 

Judson ISD Superintendent Dr. Carl A. Montoya was honored to accept a $1,000 donation from Walmart Neighborhood Store #4056.  The donation supports the efforts of the Judson Education Foundation to fund student scholarships, as well as teacher and principal grants.

Principal Scholarships Make Big Impact

The Judson Education Foundation is all about helping students and innovative teachers with resources that can help push them over the top to excellence.  But it also includes principals.  Last year JEF started Principal Grants to help out campuses that had special projects or initiatives that had great potential, but lacked funding.  The Judson Education Foundation came through with $15,000  for three schools. Judson Middle School, Copperfield Elementary and JECA were the big winners.  Each principal getting a grant has some special plans for the funding.  You can ask them...I'm sure they'll be glad to tell you all about it.  Special thanks to Elizabeth Kuhlmann of RBFCU who is also the Vice President of the Judson Education Foundation for her support in awarding these grants. 

 

  

 

JEF Golf Tournament Raises Big Bucks

What a wonderful day for golf at Brackenridge Golf Course. After an iffy week of weather, the clouds broke open blue skies and the greens dried out to be excellent.  We had so many great players out there...and some, well they had a great time and both were so important to the $40,000 that was raised for Judson Education Foundation scholarships and grants. There will be a lot of students and teachers that will benefit from all this.  A big thank you to all the sponsors, donors, players and of course a big high five to all the volunteers.

JEF Football Camp 2016

The 2016 Judson Education Foundation Youth Football Camp was again a great success. Rutledge Stadium played host to about 170 kids that were eager to learn from some great players and coaches.  Those instructing the kids ranged from former college players and coaches to former members of Judson Rocket title teams.  The kids got two days of beautiful weather that held up after all the rain and it turned out to be near perfect conditions.  What a way to learn to basics and the finer points of the great game of football. Thanks to all our sponsors, instructors and athletic department that made this possible.  The Judson Youth Sports provided 40 great volunteers to make this happen...more than $7,600 was raised for JEF scholarships and grants for students and teachers as a result of this camp....SUPER!
