No hiding from shadows for MFHS construction students

MFHS students view a master plan for Travisso development.

There was no hiding from shadows for Marble Falls High School (MFHS) students on Groundhog Day this year.

The Marble Falls Construction Trades Program was one of only two school programs in Texas, and 10 nationwide, to participate in the Toll Brothers Builders National Groundhog Day Job Shadowing event.

MFHS students traveled to the 2,100 acre Travisso master-planned community in neighboring Leander to explore all of the career trade opportunities available in the building industry.

The Toll Brothers’ mentoring event was designed to showcase to students the number of different in-demand careers that are available to students trained in workforce ready programs.

By Emily Hilley-Sierzchula

Theater students, on both technical and thespian sides, are used to challenges; in addition to keeping theater fun, challenges can mean greater rewards.

Marble Falls High School (MFHS) theater teacher Jon Clark knew any Arthur Miller drama would be a good learning experience for students.

"It's been challenging from an acting standpoint, and from the technical side, so it's been really intense in a short amount of time,” Clark said. “I hope what we’re doing is something pretty cool and good theater."
