This Volunteer Cheer goes out to the many
Science and Engineering Fair judges
who contribute their time to serve and support CCISD students’ scientific aspirations every year.
The annual event has all the materials and elements of the perfect partnership: inquisitive students, patient parents, guiding teachers and a supportive community. It is that final ingredient, however, in the form of the volunteer Science Fair Judge, which helps bring the Fair to successful fruition each year.
CCISD Science and Engineering Fair Director Mike Jenkins has volunteered as a judge for 22 years. Jenkins has served as director for more than 10 years. “I am passionate about the Fair because through this experience, I gained confidence to speak publicly," he said. "Having to present your project is a scary thing for high school students, and then gaining this confidence will serve you for the rest of your life.”
