Students
of MacArthur High Schools Business Information Management 2 and Business
Practicum class were honored on February 29 by the Irving Heritage
Society.  Under the direction of Cheryl
Oertel, the two classes worked on retyping, the layout design and converted a
1989-1990 tea recipe book into a digital format for reprinting.

Among those on hand for the recognition were project chair Patty Landers Caperton,
Heritage Society President Mary Moorman, Peggy Duvall who chaired the original tea recipe book committee and artist Dana Duvall Morgan who provided the original illustrations.  A certificate as well as a donation check was presented to Ms. Oertel in appreciation for the work by the classes.  This is one of several ongoing projects involving students from the Irving Independent School District and the Irving Heritage Society during the Heritage House 100th Anniversary year.

During the discussion, the MacArthur students were interested in the IBM typewriter
ball which was brought to show the comparison of former methods of typing the materials for printing compared to the computer layout.  Most students had never typed on a
typewriter!
