Locks-Travis

Travis gives four years to Navy, 12.5 inches to Locks of Love

While many high school graduates prepare to leave for college in the next few weeks, one Rockford resident is taking a different direction.

Jayme Travis, a 2009 graduate of Rockford High School, departed August 18 for the Navy. She will attend boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill., for eight weeks, followed by five weeks of specialized training in Pensacola, Fla. After her 13 weeks of intense training, “All I know is I will be stationed on an aircraft carrier,” said Travis. “The ‘where’ and ‘for how long’ is unknown.”

The Navy requires all enlisted females at all times to have off-the-shoulder-length hair or shorter. Travis donated 12.5 inches of shiny, strawberry-blonde hair to Locks of Love.
