RYLA Student Report


Dripping Springs High School students Anna Wyszkowski and Saidee Hernandez were chosen from a field of 15 applicants to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy by the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs.  The young leaders shared their experience at RYLA with the club.
Saidee Hernandez is a power lifter and runs track and field at DSHS.  She was surprised by some troubled students and their willingness to share their story and left her with the important message of "reach out to everyone".  The academy helped her gain self-confidence.  Her favorite activity was the balloon game where you had to hug someone to pop the balloon.
Anna Wyszkowski is a member of Interact, Young women in leadership and Spanish Honor Society, not to mention she is part of Ballet Austin six days per week.  She was pleased that the academy leaders push you to work as a team and as a leader.  She learned communication skills.  Her favorite activity was to build a mural without talking to her teammates.
Judge Bill Henry, Hays County District Court
Judge Bill Henry has practiced law for over 30 years and is double certified in both family and civil trial law.  He is a former assistant district attorney.  He took time to explain the Hays County court hierarchy:   Justice of the Peace handles tickets; the county court at law handles misdemeanor; the district court handles felony crimes, large civil and family cases (all important cases).  In a  typical week of non-jury dockets he will see 80 cases.  Jury dockets are 1-3 weeks usually.  In 2017 he issued 1,725 judgments and had 200 days of trials.
There are 4 district judges, 3 are in New Braunfels and he's the only one in San Marcos.  The judge described the 4 types of cases he sees.  First is criminal cases, and these typically arise from poverty and from the eastern portion of the county.  He believes in a fair, just way of making decisions.  Then there are the drug cases where the court can order rehabilitation if the offender wants it.  He supports drug court because of the 1 on 1 contact.  Family court is code driven, the judge has no leeway in decisions.  Civil cases are very technical in nature.
Hays County is adding 1 district judge and 1 county court in October 2018, and it is much needed.  His court was created in 2005 and his case load has doubled since that time.
