Web Design Class - March 2008

Amarillo High School

Knowledge of website design software will certainly take this generation’s students far in the world of ever-advancing technology. It takes hard work to learn all the intricate details of web-building programs, and no one knows that better than the students in the Web Design class at Amarillo High School. Teacher Kelly Hudspeth commented that the class has only been available since last year. She said that her students have "really stepped up" to the challenge of learning to run programs such as DreamWeaver and PhotoShop. In a world of brand-new products and always changing technology, this class of students has risen to the occasion to learn the skills that will prepare them for careers in the world of tomorrow. Congratulations!
