STRQ graduated from Beacon Academy prior to the events of the series. Qrow reveals that they were rather well-known during their time at Beacon, suggesting a similar reputation and accomplishments to the team which their children became part of, Team RWBY.
After Team STRQ first formed, Taiyang and at least one other member, likely Summer by process of elimination, played a prank on Qrow. He had never seen a school uniform before, so they told him that the girl's uniform skirt was actually a kilt. When Qrow appeared in class, then-Teacher's Assistant Peter Port had to leave and privately laugh. Later, Qrow had to publicly work on his landing strategy while wearing the skirt, a memory Taiyang would find hilarious for years. Taiyang also claims that this prank did Qrow a favor as it helped him catch the positive attention of girls in the school.
Following the team's dissolution, Summer actively worked as a Huntress and raised a family with Taiyang up until her death on a mission; Taiyang became a teacher at Signal Academy; Raven returned to the bandit tribe that raised her and Qrow and eventually became its leader; Qrow temporarily became a teacher at Signal and actively worked in Ozpin's group.
