WATT provides hands-on training in graphic design and IT-related fields for youth of color, and will be going into its second year in the summer of 2016.

“Marshall’s background as a design management professional has been of great service as we continue to spread the word about LBD and the association,” added Koehler “He directed redesign of the LBDA corporate web site, and provided creative direction for LBDA marketing collateral materials. His strong communication skills will benefit LBDA through his new role as board secretary,” said Koehler.
