Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Judy Miles Templeton


Married Bob in May 1962 after he graduated from UT. Lived in South Austin then moved further south to acreage we bought in Driftwood, Texas (Hays county). Raised our 4 sons in the country, with them learning about livestock, hunting, building fences, vegetable gardening and the hard work it takes to raise cows, sheep & goats. They raised chickens, racing pigeons and brought home every stray animal they thought needed food and a home.
Our 4 sons are married and we have 7 grandchildren (5 boys and 2 girls).
I owned a greenhouse & florist business for 15 years, then worked 13 years as an accountant for a business in Wimberley, along with community and church volunteer work, election precinct chairman for 25 years, and taking care of the secretarial work for the Driftwood Cemetery for 40 years (which I am still doing). Best of all, I love ranch work.

In September 1954, The American Statesman started a column called "Tri-High Scoop". A student from each high school wrote about the happenings at their school and then it was published in the Sunday paper. Each school had a "catchy" name, Austin was Maroon Musings, McCallum was 'Callum Clues and Travis was Travis Drawl. Enjoy reading about the days when you were at Travis.

Tri-High-School-4
Travis Drawl
By Carol Cotman
November 24, 1957

"Over the net, and score one for me!" Monday these cries were heard on the Travis tennis courts as Mrs. Betty Otts surveyed prospects for this year's tennis team.

Chosen for the girl's team were Geneva Lanier, Barbara Reid, Elizabeth Nitschke, Mary Sheppard, Pat Hall and Phil Hall. Bill Milligan, Jimmy Jackson, Tommy Proffitt and Don Corbell were chosen as the boy's tennis team.

A recent visitor to Travis was Dr. E. Stanley Jones, who was the speaker at the first all-school assembly of the year.

Travis was well presented last weekend in San Marcos as three Travis FFA boys walked home with third place in the land judging contest held there. This team of boys consisted of Larry Powell, Larry Walker and Morriss Johnson.

Co-Editors of the Rebel Roundup, Bob Chandler and Jackie Smith, and Business Manager Judy Fuhrman, have had a somewhat hectic week as they brought an end to yearbook sales. Sponsoring the annual this year is Mrs. Mary Katherine McDougall.

The calendar for the PASFers of Travis was full last week. Tuesday night was the date for a covered dish supper attended by about 120 PASFers from Austin High, McCallum and Fulmore. Mrs. Margaret Adey, sponsor of the Travis organization announced that the purpose of the supper was to bring all high school PASFers together to bring strength to the organization. A color movie of an air flight over South America was shown to the group.

Hosts for the supper were Travis PASFers. Also on their agenda was a visit on club day, Thursday, four foreign language teachers from Spain, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Brazil. Also hosts to these visitors was the food class of Travis who honored them with a coffee. These teachers observed classes at Travis all day Thursday.

Melinda Milstead, Evelyn Lewis, Jackie Smith, Sara Washington, Nancy Alexander, Patsy Larson, Altha Ann Graef, Bobby Francis, Everly Driscoll, Nancy Dawson and Carol Cotman were the 11 seniors who topped the scholastic record for the first six week at Travis. These students made up the all-A honor roll.
