San Antonio College joins Travis Early College High School to celebrate a Blue Ribbon Nomination

Celebrating a Texas-Sized Honor

Early on a cool Friday morning, students at San Antonio Independent School District’s Travis Early College High School were given an opportunity to leave class for a little while and to celebrate a major honor. The students, laughing and waving blue ribbons, met on the school’s courtyard to mark the school’s nomination as a Blue Ribbon School in Texas.

Each year the Texas Education Agency nominates public schools in the state for the national recognition given by the U.S. Department of Education. The Blue Ribbon honor is given to schools which perform at the highest levels.

The students were joined by members of the San Antonio College and Travis administrative teams as well as faculty from both schools. SAC is an academic partner of Travis Early College High School.

“San Antonio College is pleased to recognize and celebrate the nomination of Travis Early College High School,” said Dr. Robert Vela, President of SAC. “Many of our faculty members have worked with the students at Travis giving them a strong academic foundation. The majority of the students leave Travis not only with a high school diploma but with up to two years of college credits.”

“Travis Early College High School is where the college dream becomes a reality,” added Principal Adrianna Arredondo. “The rigor that students put toward this goal has been rewarded with this Blue Ribbon School nomination. I am ecstatically proud of my students.”

The mood was festive as students gathered for a photograph and for a drone video to capture the occasion.

“I’m really proud of the school,” said Adrian, a junior. “This really lets us show the world that our hard work has been paying off.”

John, another junior, added that the school deserved the nomination. “We work hard and we make the grades.”

“I’m really glad I’m attending this school and it’s going to help me achieve greater things in the future,” said Myrka, a freshman. “The school has exceeded my expectations, I thought it would be a great opportunity but it turned out to be the best opportunity I could ever have.”

The nominated schools will now complete a rigorous application process through the U.S. Department of Education. Announcement of the national award winners will be in September of this year.
