It may not be a well-known fact that dyslexia can affect up to 20 percent of a student population. It can, and that presents a significant number of students who struggle with dyslexia-related challenges, such as learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, to name a few.
While the season is soon coming to an end for Ball High School’s Tor band, the influence of one band member - senior drum captain Colin Thomas – is sure to echo forward even after the marching stops.
During a time when Galveston ISD is looking ahead to exciting new developments such as an upgraded football stadium, an innovative new high school, and other improved realities that will only enhance the district’s educational offerings, Thomas is an example of the kind of student those efforts will impact – students who have the ability to use what they learn during their time at GISD and positively benefit themselves and those around them.
The photography offerings available to students at Galveston ISD’s Ball High School have expanded rapidly recently, growing from one course offered to now four in just a two-year span.

A first-of-its-kind unmanned aerial and marine piloting program is gaining momentum for students in Galveston Independent School District’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program at Ball High School this fall.
Originally taking flight this summer as a prototype internship through a partnership with the National Science Foundation and Texas A&M University, the 16-month pilot project provides students with the opportunity to pilot drones, gather aerial and boat mapping data and utilize geographic information systems (GIS) to assist vulnerable communities with pre-disaster mitigation efforts, such as providing state emergency managers with up-to-date information to assist with decision making and recovery efforts when disasters such as floods, hurricanes and wildfires occur.
