Recently, several Grangeville High School students have prepared for, taken, and passed the Microsoft Office Specialist certification. Students in business and computer teacher Bruce Wassmuth’s classes learn Microsoft Office programs, including Word 2013, Excel 2013, Access 2013, and PowerPoint 2013. They then focus on specializing in one of the four programs. Once they become proficient in the program, they take a nationally recognized test to prove their knowledge of the software. If they pass, they are awarded with a Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. After they certify in one area, they focus on another area. Successfully certified this year include the following (L-R) Illyana Barela, Trent Hunter, Holland Forsmann, Brenda Gomez, Rebecca Kaschmitter and Jillian Hausladen. In addition, Amrit Singh, Jordan Reuter and Victoria Rockwell will test for certification this week. Soon, more than 60 additional students will test for certification in Excel.
