News from The Killeen Daily Herald:

BELTON — It’s no surprise to Austin Crawley that he ended up with a career in education. He was raised in a family of educators.

“Quin has been such a blessing to our company, we decided to bring it here. Arroyo Grande High School is actually the first high school we’ve been to,” said Bob Martin, a senior manager with Atmel.

Etnyre uses the company’s products — microcontrollers and radio frequency components — in his inventions that he markets through his own company, Qtechknow.
