While Juliana has received many awards for art and fashion, her most memorable was 1st place in local Rep. John Culberson’s Congressional Art Competition, which took her to Washington, D.C. Her painting hung inside the U.S. Capitol for a year.

She has sold several pieces through the local Culture Shapers group and designed bibs, hats and clothes for the company, Don’t Kiss the Baby.

Juliana is president and founder of the Korean Student Association. She is active in the Memorial Mustangs Outreach Bunch and at the Korean Language School. She also received UIL State Solo and Ensemble awards, and she was selected as a member of Regional Orchestra in 2009 and 2010.

Juliana writes that she wants to learn as fast as she can to achieve her dream of being a fashion designer and to see people wear designs that she creates. Her art teacher, Cathleen May, notes that she has a strong record of success: “She looks forward to a challenge and proceeds with strong convictions.”

She will study fashion design at Parsons School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology.

2013 Diane Jackson Scholarship Winner
A longtime employee of Spring Branch ISD, Diane Jackson was a dear friend to many here and in Austin. She was a staunch supporter of public education and passionate advocate for SBISD. She spent many of her days every two years in Austin during the Texas Legislature, helping the district and state lawmakers remain connected. She died three years ago, but her friends and co-workers have kept her spirit alive by continuing to honor graduating seniors with scholarships in her name. 

Diane herself left a financial gift to SBEF for this very purpose.
