Hudgeons family visits Europe

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Stonehenge, Harry Potter, the Eiffel Tower and The Last Supper are an interesting combination. What do they have in common? They were all part of the Hudgeons family European vacation.
 
The Hudgeons family has been taking trips each summer since their daughters, Claire and Victoria, were kids. Now, Claire and Victoria are both out of college, and summer trips with the whole family may be a little harder to come by.
 
Claire, like her parents John and Jennifer, is a teacher at Cuero ISD, and Victoria graduated from Texas State University this past May. Victora has aspirations of becoming a writer, so she may not have summers off like the teachers in her family, making this trip to Europe all the more meaningful.
 
This tour of Europe added to the already substantial amount of traveling the family has done.

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View
 
Born and raised in Sinton, Pamela Edwards, the new Yorktown Elementary School principal, hopes to find a home in Yorktown and raise little wildcats.
 
Edwards received her bachelors and masters at Texas A&M Corpus Christi but not in succession.
 
“After I received my bachelors degree in 2005 I went back to Sinton to teach at my Hometown. It was not until four to fives years later that I knew I wanted to be a principal,” said Edwards.
 
After six years of teaching in Sinton, Edwards moved to Yoakum and taught in Meyersville while finishing her master’s degree in administration educational leadership in 2012. After nine years of teaching Kindergarten and first grade she feels ready to move into the next chapter in her life.

New truancy law scaled down from Class C misdemeanor to civil punishment

By Tim O’Malley
The Cuero Record
 
Texas and Wyoming were the only two states in the U.S. to prosecute minors for truancy. For Texas, that will change on Sept. 1.
The Texas 84th Legislation passed HB 2398 Truancy Reform, signed by the governor on June 18, which will decriminalize truancy. The law replaces existing criminal prosecution with civil punishments. It also requires schools to take more steps to address students’ truancy problems before referring students to court. 
 
Kevin Wilson, Nordheim Independent School District superintendent said, “Everything that Legislation has put in place the schools have already had in place. Basically, they want us to do what we are doing and then do it again.”

Back to school event set in memory of Cuero woman on Aug. 8 at the Cuero Municipal Park

CUERO – Ethosha Lynn Holman took her last breath on Feb. 8, 2015. Six months later her dream is coming to life.
Holman, who died from renal kidney failure at 41, had often told her mother that she hoped the day would come that she could help all the children who needed school supplies get them. 
 
On Aug. 8, the Tri-City Empowerment Council is making that happen with a Back To School Bash event at Cuero Municipal Park.
 
Through donations from businesses and other community members, the Council is providing students, identified through the Cuero School District as needing assistance, backpacks filled with the needed school supplies.
 
“The list of required school supplies seems to grow longer and longer every year,” said Viola Holman, who is helping to organize the event in memory of her only child.
