    Ham Radio Club Signals Marble Falls High School Students to Design Banner:

    MARBLE FALLS -- When Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club member Brooks Blake considered finding someone to create a wraparound graphic for the organization's trailer, he could have kept the project in the family. "My two sons are graphic designers," he said. Instead, Blake and the club decided to get on the same wavelength with Marble Falls High School teacher Jim Bryant's graphic design class. "When Mr. Bryant called and suggested the idea, I thought it was a great idea," Blake said. "It's a chance for the club not only to be more involved in the community, but a chance for the kids to also get some community involvement." Blake parked the trailer in front of the high school Feb. 14 so students could take measurements, note the shape and ask questions. After the meeting, the students returned to class and broke up into four-member teams. The project provides the class with real-world experience that benefits not just themselves, but a group that helps residents and first-responders by coordinating communications during a crisis, educators said.
