‘No Place for Hate’ lauded by Marble Falls School Board; new motto announced for district

MARBLE FALLS — A rap song by pupils promoting the “No Place for Hate” initiative at Marble Falls Middle School drew a standing ovation May 21 at the School Board meeting, reminding listeners that “student power” makes a difference.

“When you hand over power to the students, it really does change the atmosphere of the campus,” said Megan Flowers of the Anti-Defamation League, who was at the meeting to recognize the middle school as the first “No Place for Hate” facility in the district.
