Judson MS Student Named National Finalist in Essay Contest

Judson Middle School student Dominico Lombardo has been named a National Finalist in the "Do the Write Thing Challenge!"  Middle school students from all over the country are given an opportunity to examine the impact of violence on their lives and communicate in writing what they think should be done to change our culture of violence.  Those essays were reviewed by a panel of judges, including the committee chair, Bexar County District Attorney, Susan Reed.  Two "National Ambassadors" were selected  - one boy and one girl, who submitted the most thought-provoking entries.  They will receive a trip to Austin, where they'll tour the Capitol and other landmarks.  In addition, the National Campaign to Stop Violence has invited each student, along with their teacher and one parent to a national reception in Washington D.C.  Dominico will meet with the Attorney General of the United States and members of Congress to discuss the problem of youth violence.  Several other Judson ISD middle school students were recognized for their writings as well:  Lauryn Stewart, Judson MS; Emily McNabb, Kitty Hawk MS; James Shuler, Metzger MS; Jessica Gonzalez, Metzger MS; Jalen Easley, Woodlake Hills MS; and Jomani Outing, Woodlake Hills MS.  A book of all the students' writings will be placed in the Library of Congress.
