Students of the second Rocket Pride Award watch this years Lip Dub with Mr. Hernandez.

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.

Principal Jesus Hernandez wanted to make sure that the group was bigger, recognizing more students for their contributions to Judson High School. The first group was a small group of 11. The second group was a larger group of 25, and the committee has been advised to recognize more students.

During this luncheon, the committee recognized four students who were recognized for starting the student fan group, The Launch Pad.

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.
