MHS Students Earn Certification in Microsoft Office

On Tuesday, April 26th, students taking the College Credit Plus class OFIT-1130 Word Processing 1 traveled to Southern State Community College in Wilmington, Ohio, to take the certification for MOS – Word. Ten students passed the exam certifying them for Microsoft Office Suite Word. These students have been studying and practicing for the Word exam during the spring semester in Ms. Richards class OFIT-1130 Word Processing, which is offered at MHS as a college credit plus class through Southern State Community College. This is a great accomplishment for these students.

The Microsoft Office Suite is a package of office productivity software released by Microsoft which includes Word, PowerPoint and Excel. This is the first CCP computer class offered at MHS through Southern State Community College where students can become certified. Next year, MHS will also be offering PowerPoint and Excel where students will also have the opportunity to become certified in those areas of the Microsoft Office Suite. This is a great opportunity for students as they will earn 9 college credit hours and can be certified in all three areas when they graduate. Being certified in all three areas also looks great on a résumé.

The students who certified were Gabe Horsely, Jamison Wilkins, Kayleigh Robinson, Natasha Curtis, Montana Hamilton, Austin Grooms, Ryan Dryden, Cassidy Boone, Veronica Montgomery, and Raeanna Stamm.
