'Memories ' Of School Acfivifies
The school year 1973-'74 provided many 'memo-
ries' for Travis Jr. High School students and faculty.
Riding on a crowded bus, standing in the lunchline,
having a pop test over a chapter in science Cwhich
you did not readh, and participating in school activi-
ties helped to make this a year to remember.
The ninth grade and the eighth grade students are
eagerly looking forward to attending a new school.
Next season will bring an entirely new look to the
hallowed halls of TJHS.

County Echo for assisting with photography in the
sports section. A special 'thanks' goes to Mr. Jack
Corey, the art instructor, for art work on the cover of
our book .
As you thumb through this book, we hope you will
be able to remember all the little things that space

Travis Student Body Selecfed As
ABOVE: Some of the members of Coach LaRue's Red Team are introduced during a pep
rally. They are CL. to RJ Brad Patterson, David Maynard, Ken Bills, Larry Aiken, Wil-
liam Cooper, and Earl Posey.
The student body had been a great asset to Travis
Ir. High, for without them, Travis could not exist.
They have shown interest in activities at school as
well as outside projects.
Therefore, THE TEXAN staff thinks it appropriate
to dedicate THE '74 TEXAN to the student body.

As the 1973-74 school year came to a clou, it not only
closed the doors of the school, but it also locked in many
'memories' of the pasttyear. It found eighth and ninth graders
anxiously anticipating the new high school and seventh graders
looking forward to being top classmen at Travis Jr. High
' We, THE TEXAN staff, have strived to capture the events of
this year and hope that many 'memories' have been preserved
through our efforts .
