Wearing red caps and gowns, the students accepted their diplomas from Travis Principal Niki Konecki, Assistant Principal Brooke Neal and San Marcos CISD Superintendent Dr. Patty Shafer.

A total of 83 students graduated on May 28, and another 67 on May 29. Each kindergarten graduate wore a stole with the logo of the university they hope to attend.

The graduation was underwritten by a higher education grant from the San Marcos Education Foundation. It was Travis’ third kindergarten graduation, capping a week-long focus on higher education. Teachers from all grades wore university t-shirts and costumes all week as they talked about the importance of a college education.
