Today's Featured Biography

 

 
James Spillar


I was born in South Austin in July of 1942 to John A. and Mildred Spillar. Both of my parents are still alive and living on Lake Travis - Dad was 95 in September and Mom was 93 in March. Both are still very active in their church and in fairly good health. I continued to live in Austin until 2003 when my wife and I moved to the Marble Falls area. In 1976 I started my business (Spillar Custom Hitches) on South Congress. Today I have that location plus another on I-35 North. I married Harriett Macune after high school and we had one daughter (Sherri). We were divorced in 1986. I married my current wife, Carol, in 1992. With her came two sons, Brant and Brad and three grandchildren - Kyle, Kelly and Bryce. Since we have been married we have been blessed with three more grandchildren - Carli, Sydni and Bridgett. God has richly blessed me with family, health and much more success than I ever dreamed possible. I look forward to seeing everyone at our 50th.

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
October 27, 1957

Saturday was the date and Belton High School was the place. The occasion was the District Four meeting of the Future Homemakers of America. Representing Travis was a panel of six girls who were included on the program.

Chairman was Nancy Pearson, who is district treasurer. Area president Alice Mosteller, was one of the panel members. Other members were Wanda Ponder, Margaret Burt, Phyllis Crouch, and Melinda Milstead.

Color day at Travis brought honors to several advisories which had outstanding decorations pertaining to the Travis-McCallum football game. Miss Josie Champion's advisory placed first in this contest with Mrs. Irene Falk's advisory second. Miss Jane Smoot's advisory won third place.

Announced at the McCallum-Travis football game was the 1957 Football Sweetheart for Travis, Miss Nancy Thomas. Dixieland came to life again in this football game when the Rebels rebelled against the predictions of the experts, and came out on top of the northsiders, 14-0. The prized Victory Bell is now in possession of the Rebels as a result of this game.

Hi Ya'll Week was climaxed by the announcement of the friendliest boy and girl at Travis. Tops on the Rebel's list proved to be Terry Bray and Janice Brown.

The PASF of Travis has set November 8 as the date of its installation. President of this club is Narcissa Gutierrez. Serving as vice-president is Judie Wood; recording secretary is Everly Driscoll; corresponding secretary is Hortense Guerra; parliamentarian is Judy Fuhrmann; treasurer is Connie Todd; reporter-historian is Judy Griffin. sponsoring this organization is Mrs. Margaret Adey.
