National Honor Society Members On Pathway To Success

Military-connected and civilian National Honor Society students from Judson, Wagner and Judson Early College Academy participated in a “Chance of a Life Time Post-Secondary Planning” experience at Our Lady of the Lady University. The volunteer opportunity was held during the Alamo Area College Access and Completion Consortium’s Third Annual Summit. This year’s theme was Hand in Hand: Preparing Students for a Seamless Pathway to Success! The consortium provided professionals from school districts throughout Texas with sharing practices, tools and resources to support and prepare students to engage in their learning by guiding them to seek opportunities and paths that support their interest and passions.

JISD students were able to network with professional educators such as College Professors, Academic Advisors, University Directors, University Presidents, Vice Chancellors, etc. This amazing opportunity enabled our students to gain insights to their post-secondary plans and goals. Judson ISD junior and senior high school students and surrounding school districts will be invited back to attend the Alamo Colleges Young Leadership Conference on April 20, 2018 at Northeast Lakeview College. Many thanks to, JISD Military Family & College Readiness Specialist, Sylvia Greenwood, Our Lady of the Lake University, Alamo Colleges, San Antonio Education Partnership and Judson High School National Honor Society Sponsor, Christina Lopez-Mobilia. Post-secondary planning with the future of our JISD students & families was a huge success!
