A proud Koreshia McLemore lined up her son, Vanden High School freshman Isaiah, with a couple of his friends before taking the picture.
“I just want to cry,” McLemore said, dropping her son off for his first day of high school, “but I am not worried about him at all.”
McLemore said her son had already started his day helping with the school’s Senior Sunrise, a school tradition where the school’s senior class gets to school at about 3 a.m. to greet the sun.
“He will have a long day today, probably not getting home until 8 p.m.,” she said, referring to his after-school football practice.
The McLemores were just two of several thousand parents and students present for the start of the Travis School District’s 2017-18 school year Wednesday.
