The Knippa, Texas Independent School District is all about Vulcan. The high school gymnasium in Knippa is named The Vulcan Center and the school mascot is, what else, a Rockcrusher! “It’s unique, there’s not any mascot like that in Texas,” said Lee Alejanero, Athletic Director.

The Vulcan Materials Company Knippa Quarry is an integral part of the community, which has an estimated population of 695 residents. The Vulcan gym even boasts a student section called The Gravel Pit.
