Recently at Kimball Area High School, the students of Nancy Bonnifield’s Computer Applications II class have been working diligently designing websites, brochures, and business cards for Kimball Chiropractic.
Dr. Marty was in need of a new website because as a small business owner he did not have time to create his own. The process began when students visited Kimball Chiropractic, interviewed Dr. Marty and took pictures of the business. Back in the classroom, the students used Weebly.com, to create their own version of a website. After presenting the websites to Dr. Marty, he critiqued them and students went back to work on their final edits. The finalized websites were e-mailed to Dr. Marty and he chose Stacy Hurrle’s website to represent his business. Along the way, the students noticed a disconnection between the new website and his other marketing materials. Using Microsoft Publisher they created new business cards and a brochure.
Stacy Hurrle noted that “It was cool to make a website that helps a local business in my community.”
The students enjoyed learning and applying new skills to this real life situation. The students would like to thank Dr. Marty for giving them this opportunity.
Dr. Michael Marty, owner of Kimball Chiropractic, worked with Computer Applications II students to create a new webpage. Stacy Hurrle’s webpage was chosen as his favorite, and Isiah Allen’s webpage was Dr. Marty’s second choice. Submitted photo.
