When you're preparing to feed some 25,000 people on Thanksgiving Day like the Jimenez family, you have to have resources.  The Judson ISD is proud to be one of those resources providing a hefty number of canned yams for Thanksgiving plates come time to eat the big meal.  This is the second year for the drive and this time around the Judson ISD Police Department collected 1,500 cans of sweet potatoes.  Of course this drive was also a challenge that went out to all the district campuses and organizations to see who could bring in the most and 1st place Olympia ES, 2nd place Wagner ROTC and 3rd place Hopkins ES.  Congratulations.  A big thank you goes out to San Antonio Firefighters Assoc.

Judson ISD Police Chief Honored

A lot of us know Judson ISD Police Chief Teresa Gonzalez as being an energetic and warm person, but she also gets her job done and done well.  Others are seeing it too.  "Chief" was honored at the Mary Espiritu Scholarship Luncheon as being one of the "Outstanding Hispanic Women Role Models."  Along with running a police department that covers a lot of ground in the district, she takes time to help out other folks when they need it. She accepted the honor at a ceremony downtown along with a "Yellow Rose of Texas" award signed by Governor Rick Perry. The "Yellow Rose" award is an honor given to those who have a significant impact on their community.  That certainly fits Chief Gonzalez.  She was accompanied at the ceremony with her parents Nabor and Yolanda Gonzalez.  Congratulations Chief!!



Judson Students Help Out Law Enforcement

National Night Out is a nationwide program that gets people out in the neighborhood to renew relationships, heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention at the grass roots.  Students from the Judson High School Criminal Justice Club helped the Universal City Police Department for the big October event.  This was a great experience for students Stephanie Garcia and Robert Batkins to see what real law enforcement officers do with the program and how it helps foster greater neighborhood ownership of safety and security. That makes for a better living experience wherever you live.  Thanks for being volunteers!!
