In an effort to recognize more students on campus, a group of teachers came together to start The Rocket Pride Award, an award given to students who show improvement in grades, improvement in behavior, school spirit, having a positive attitude, or being someone’s hero by simply doing good things for someone else.

At most schools, there are a group of students that tend to be ignored. Bad students always have the attention of administrators for negative reasons. Gifted and talented students always have the attention of teachers because they are smart. However, it is the group in the middle that has a tendency of being ignored.

This committee was set up to acknowledge more students in that middle for the hard work they bring to campus. “We are a large school,” Mr. Cabrera said. “We need to make sure that we get as many students acknowledged for the work that they do.”

Pizza Hut was the sponsor of the first Rocket Pride Award. They are located at at 9149 FM 78 in Converse, Texas.

The committee decided to have a drawing each grading period. Every single teacher on campus is asked to nominate a student they feel epitomizes the criteria above. Once they submit their student’s name, the committee picks a certain amount of students to celebrate. The students will have a luncheon with Principal Hernandez and other administrators. This is a chance for teachers and administrators to not only celebrate these kids, but also talk to them about what is going great at Judson High School, and what can administrators and teachers possible do to make their high school experience better.

Local restaurants have graciously donated food for each grading period. Pizza Hut and Chilis have already committed to providing food for these luncheons.

“We are making sure the kinks are worked out for the first one,” Cabrera said. “But it all worked out great. We want it to be bigger, with more students being acknowledged.”
