JISD District Salute To Military Families

While many schools in the Judson ISD were offering tributes to those who have or are still serving in our military, there was also a big show of support for the families that make sacrifices too.  JISD Military Family Appreciation Day was hosted by the district at the Performing Arts Center and focused on those family members that have to go for long stretches without their parent because of deployment. Both Judson and Wagner ROTC Color Guards presented the Colors with Star Lang of Olympia Elementary School leading the pledge of allegiance and the Wagner drum line performing as well.  Judson High School Principal Jesus Hernandez was on hand to welcome the guests with Kitty Hawk Middle School students Kamali Jack and Jose Allende delivering the Veteran's Day Message. The keynote speaker was Aric Bostick, who is a former Judson ISD teacher and a best-selling author who spoke about Setting Goals and Achieving Dreams.  Many thanks to Sylvia Greenwood, JISD Military Family Engagement Specialist. Thank you vets...and thank you family members for your contribution to this country.

I would like to say Thank you! The Military Family Appreciation Day event was a great success. My family enjoyed every bit of it. This was the most motivating gathering I have been to yet. This gave us more tools as parents for our toolbox to help understand our children and take time to really interact and set the positive example. Guest speaker was awesome. Mrs. Greenwood, to you and everyone it took to put together...Thank you for acknowledging us Veterans along with our family. Time well spent.


This was an awesome program.

Ms. Greenwood is such a great mentor and a blessing to our family. My daughter Star has grown so much by being in the military family support group at her school. This program is vital to help military kids who would normally fall through the cracks. Kids know that they have support and have someone who has their back. Ms. Greenwood and her entire team, thank you for working so hard for our kids! We are thrilled to be part of the group and thrilled to have you as a big part of our success!

Being retired from the Military and receiving an invitation to attend the Military Family Appreciation Day Event, I was anxious to see how the veterans and the military family community would be recognized and I am so glad that went. I found it to be one of the best school events that I have been to in my lifetime. The two young men who delivered the Veterans Day Message were awesome and well prepared. I’m sure they made their parents proud. The keynote speaker Aric Bostick was absolutely superb. He is inspired the children and the families to open their horizons and setting goals to enhance their future. I would like to commend the Military Family Engagement Specialist, Ms. Greenwood for her diligence in putting this outstanding event together. This was absolutely a first class experience. I look forward to attending the next program in Judson ISD for the military family community. Thank you for recognizing the veterans of the US Armed forces and their families.
