The Judson High School Class of 2015 took the Alamodome stage for graduation ceremonies as more than 700 students made that much anticipated walk to get their diploma. The event was led by Judson Principal Jesse Hernandez with Superintendent Dr. Carl Montoya certifying the seniors as graduates. Board President Steve Salyer addressed the class with his parting perspective for success. The Salutatorian address was given by Gabriela Nicole Robinson and the Valedictorian message by Rebecca Jane Fontenot...both were introduced to the audience by Mr. Christopher Galloway, Judson High School Academic Dean. The Judson Chorale performed the National Anthem as well as a piece entitled "Born To Be Somebody." The Judson High School Band provided the ceremony with the processional, alma mater and the recessional music. Below are some pictures from the ceremonies and some stats on those hooking up to the livestream broadcast that night.

Since the US had the most watching here's a look at where they were.
On the brink of graduation, Judson High School seniors recently participated in the annual Elephant Walk. The tradition was started several years ago by Judson Principal Jesse Hernandez and takes seniors back to their feeder schools...elementary and middle schools, as kind of a nostalgic trip to remind them where they've been and how far they have come. Teachers, students and staff typically form lines on either side of the senior line to cheer them on and congratulate them as they again walk the halls they once walked in their more formative years. By the way, the term "elephant walk" comes from the way seniors put their hand on the shoulder of the senior in front of them and walk in a line much like elephants do. Congratulations seniors...soon to be graduates! The pictures below are from seniors that walked Franz Elementary School.

It really says something when a brotherhood of students athletes come together because they have a sense of teamwork and helping others...a sense that was reinforced by great coaches, teachers and of course parents. Current and former Judson Rocket football players got together recently to make a trip up to the San Marcos area to help people in that area that lost so much and are trying to piece together their lives again after the devastating floods. Coach Guy Anderson and Mark Sauceda headed up this group of young men to do some heavy lifting and some real nasty work to help clean up and offer support to flood victims. Many of these guys helping out know the thrill of winning state football championships, but the feeling you get when you give yourself and your time to someone who's lost everything? That's a feeling at a different level...Well, that's Rocket Pride at its finest. Well done guys.
Those helping out:
