T.J. Williamson Administrative Offices

dougMr. T.J. Williamson opened William B. Travis Elementary School in 1956 and served as principal of the school until his retirement in 1987.

At the time of his retirement, he had continuously served as WBT principal for 31 years and was the only principal the school had ever known up until that time. Mr. Williamson’s tenure at Travis eventually produced three former students who returned to the school as teachers on his faculty.

He was principal to WBT parents and grandparents of students, and he oversaw the growth of the school from its original 273 students housed in just nine classrooms to over 650 students on a K-6 campus. Among his highlights as the leader of the Travis community were the development of a long-standing PTA which worked continuously with staff to improve the school; the growth of the school’s library; grouping for instruction; and the success of his former students.
