Model High School completed Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) testing recently with a total of 50 MOS certificates earned by students and their instructor.  Model test takers experienced a high rate of success with 96.4 percent passing the rigorous exam.   Model High is an accredited Microsoft IT Academy and that prestigious designation allows students to earn industry recognized credentials in Word 2010, PowerPoint 2010, Excel 2010, Access 2010, Word 2010 Expert and Excel 2010 Expert.   

A total of 31 students earned Word 2010 certification, 18 were successful on PowerPoint 2010, and one earned an Excel 2010 certificate.  Three Model students earned certification in two areas. Jordan Touchstone earned certificates in Excel 2010 and PowerPoint 2010; and Garrett Johnson and Stephen Googe in Word 2010 and PowerPoint 2010.  Mr. William Hosmer, MS IT Academy Coordinator and business teacher at Model High School, also earned certificates in Word 2010 and PowerPoint 2010.  

Certificates issued by Microsoft Corporation will be awarded to students passing the MOS exam at the Model High awards ceremony scheduled for May 13 for freshman, sophomores and juniors and May 15 for seniors. In addition, a total of 103 certificates from Microsoft will be given to those students who passed the Microsoft Digital Literacy certification exam last fall.  “I am glad that the program could add some substantial bullets to our student's academic and career resumes,” said Hosmer.  “These industry recognized credentials will help these students stand-out in today’s highly competitive job market.”
