PTSA Volunteer Information
The Travelers Rest High School PTSA is looking for volunteers for the 2022-2023 school year. The high school PTSA is not a huge commitment and does not require much time. We meet once a month and our only fundraiser is our school store that sells snacks and drinks at lunch time. We need board members and school store volunteers. Without volunteer leaders and volunteers, PTSA cannot function and the school will no longer benefit from all that our PTSA does to support the students, families, and staff. We need many volunteers in order to keep our PTSA running. If you are interested please contact Tanya Bishop 864-414-9353

Thank You and Goodbye
(6/6/2022 / TRHS Webmaster)
For the past 15 years it has been my privilege to manage the TRHS Website. In my very first post on 6/15/2007 I wrote, "We hope to make this site your first stop for the latest news and information about the Devildogs!" That has been my goal from the very beginning and I hope that I was able to succeed. Much has changed in the past 15 years including the rise of social media and I have certainly learned a lot through this experience.
Certainly the most popular feature has been the photo galleries. By my best count I have posted just over 1800 galleries over the years. I had to remove about 600 of them this year due to changes in software but there are still over 1200 online. I've worn out a few cameras in the process but learned so much about photography and had so many great experiences. I've photographed huge successes such as the Ladies' Tennis State Championship in 2013 and the Devildogs' first win at Greer in football. I've also been there for heartbreaking losses. I've tried my best to cover all aspects of life as a Devildog whether it is in athletics, the Arts, FFA, and scholastic achievements. Through it all I have been able to get to know my students better and gotten to know students I never had the chance to teach. I've also had the chance to work with students as they took photos and gotten help from them when I was unable to be at an event.
I want to express my sincere thanks to so many people. I'm grateful that Lou Lavely asked me to accept the position and for his support as I made the changes I felt were needed. I am also thankful to Daniel Bruce for his support over the past three years as we've expanded the social media components. I've worked with a great staff that provided me with ideas and stories as well as provided encouragement. Most of all I am thankful for the students and parents and their enthusiasm for viewing the galleries and following the news on the site.
As I enter a new stage of my life in retirement it is appropriate that I turn over the duties to Emily Dorr, a former student. I hope you will provide Emily your support as she takes over this responsibility. While I will no longer be on staff I remain a part of the Devildog family and am sure I will once again roam the sideline in the coming months. Until then, thank you and goodbye (for now.) -- Rick Veazey

(6/1/2022 / TRHS Webmaster)
Congratulations to Tristan Stroud and Alex Ward for committing to continue their athletic careers at the next level. Tristan has signed with Erskine to compete in Track and Field and Alex has signed with Presbyterian College to play football. We are so excited that these two have joined our other seniors who have signed to continue playing sports at the next level. We are so proud of both of you and look forward to seeing what you do in the future. Go Devildogs!
Alive at 25 Information
Alive at 25 is an early intervention program developed by the National Safety Council to prevent traffic violations, collisions, and fatalities. It is a 4 ½ hour defensive driving course that addresses the dangers of speeding, failure to use seatbelts, using cell phones while driving, eating while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and more. It focuses on the behaviors that young drivers exhibit behind the wheel, and allows the student to recognize the consequences of those actions. Use the links below to download a flyer about the program or go to their website. You can find upcoming classes on their website using the second link. Completion of the program is required for any student that parks on campus.
