GIVING BACK: 247th Family District Court Judge John Schmude Encourages 5th Graders at Krahn Elementary to Dream Big
As the youngest of ten children and the father of two, Judge John Schmude, judge for the 247th Family District Court in Harris County knows a thing or two about what kids need to grow into successful adults. He also knows how important it is for children to be inspired, mentored, encouraged and motivated to do their best at an early age.
Judge Schmude recently returned to the elementary school he attended as a child to speak to current students who were getting ready for their summer break.
Judge John Schmude: “It was such a privilege to be asked to speak today at the ‘5th Grade Appreciation Day’ at my old elementary school – Krahn Elementary in Spring. I enjoyed telling the kids to dream big, to take their education seriously and to believe in themselves! I want to thank my friend Damiane Lowe Curvey Banieh for extending the invitation.”
According to Damiane Lowe Curvey Banieth, the kids at Krahn Elementary really enjoyed Judge Schmude’s visit. And the staff? Well, the staff at Krahn (located at 9502 Eday Drive) felt honored to have Judge John Schmude to come back and take the time to speak to the students.
Krahn Elementary is part of the Klein Independent School District. According to their website, the Klein Independent School District takes great pride in honoring founding families of the Klein community by naming its schools for them. This helps keep alive the cultural heritage of the area. Krahn Elementary School was named after the Krahn family because they were a family of hard-working people who made real contributions to the community. Krahn Elementary has continued in the tradition of the early Krahn family by making contributions to the community it serves.
