With blue robes and blue mortarboards – some wearing leis, and at least one weighed down with an assortment of neck ware – the graduates of the Travis Education Center on Friday afternoon were greeted by a packed house with cheers and loud hoots as they gamboled down the center aisles of the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre.
Sixty-one graduates – most from TEC, but some from the Community Day School and others from the Independent Studies program – assembled on the theater stage. Thirteen of the students were juniors graduating a full year early. Others actually need to finish their studies over the summer.
