Judson Senior Earns Eagle Scout Rank

                                     

PATRICK CAREY AND JEANNETTE DIAZ AT ROUGH RIDER DISTRICT EAGLE BOARD

 

Patrick Carey, a senior at Judson High School enrolled in the Dual Credit program initiated an Eagle Scout project with Rolling Meadows Elementary. He and Mr. Olivares decided the front courtyard middle garden area needed to be spruced up.  The area started out as an overgrown pond with a water feature and ended up being transformed into a beautiful garden with a variety of plants and a new planter box.  This project was accomplished by Patrick and 12 volunteers from Boy Scout Troop 70.  The project took two weekends to accomplish and was completed on April 10, 2016.

After the successful completion of the Rolling Meadows garden project he was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout by the Rough Riders District Eagle Scout board. This is a nationally recognized Boy Scouts of America rank that only 6 percent of all Boy Scouts achieve.

Patrick has been accepted to the University of Texas in San Antonio as a math major with a teacher certification.  He will continue to strive to honor the Boy Scout code.

STEM Day 2016 - A Smashing Success!

Despite rain and thunderstorms, the 2016 STEM Day event at Northeast Lakeview College was a resounding success.  The event was a collaboration of Congressman Henry Cuellar, Judson ISD and Northeast Lakeview College and focused on engaging students in careers, programs and fields of study that emphasized Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Hundreds of people turned out for the event that featured dynamic demonstrations and experiments from some of the biggest names in technology.  And everyone was talking about the inspirational presentation by Captain Barrington Irving. He captivated the crowd as he recounted his experience of flying solo around the world and built a wonderful address of motivation from his story that everyone enjoyed.  A big thanks to Deborah Rice for helping organize the event along with Congressman Cuellar and his office and Northeast Lakeview College.  It just gets bigger and better each year.

Student Leaders Have Dr. Montoya's Ear

One of Dr. Montoya's favorite things to do is talk with students...whether it's a new idea, a challenge they are seeing daily on a campus or an achievement that's flown under the radar, he want's to hear about it.  Periodically, he invites student leaders at all the secondary campuses to hear what's on their mind.  This session he and the students talked about the different magnet programs that will be offered at Mackey High School as well as what the Early College District designation means to high school students and how it will work.  It was a good informative conversation.
