Header Image

All pages must have a header. Work with Kris to develop these images. All header images use “banner‐“ as a prefix. The default header image is “banner‐default”, but multiple banners are provided for different sections of the webpage.

Most pages use the “secondary‐default” with the exception of athletics, news, rampage, and library.
