JECA Students Give Gift Of Life

Giving of yourself took on a new meaning at Judson Early College Academy as students turned out for a recent blood drive.  As part of what is called a Capstone Project, one of the school's seniors organized several blood drives this school year...completely orchestrated by students.  At this most recent drive, 37 units of whole blood were collected along with 9 units of double red, and 8 units of platelets.  It's an exercise in giving, organizing, and leading.

JECA Student Selected Youth Of The Year

San Antonio Youth of the Year Savannah Mayhood

The Boys and Girls Club each year select a student that exhibits the highest leadership qualities such as communication, goal-setting, and teamwork.  After a lot of preparation and competition in writing, speech making and interviewing, one student was chosen.  Judson Early College Academy student Savannah Mayhood was selected as San Antonio's Youth of the Year.  

She will go on to the state competition in March.  We'll be following Savannah as she continues on and expect to read more about her in the next upcoming edition of the Judson Journal.  Congratulations. 

Judson Automotive Teams Shift Gears To State

The SkillsUSA program is a great pathway that encourages students to learn all sorts of ways to make themselves marketable in today's workplace.  It helps them discover their potential in abilities and aptitude and the Judson High School Automotive Teams, part of SkillsUSA, is a perfect example of how students are doing just that.
