Our FIRST Lifetime PTSA Member
Mr. Robert Falcon of Affordable Burial Services is our first lifetime PTSA member! He is not only an alumnus of Travis, but a typical Rebel success story. He was awarded his Lifetime Membership for his very generous contribution that allowed students unable to attend one of our games to have safe, comfortable bus transportation to the game. Thank you, Mr. Falcon for your kindness and generosity!!
