Midland’s Computer Business Application course utilizes Microsoft Office Academy Industry Training and Exams. When students get certified (pass an exam), they are automatically entered into the MOS Championship entries for Iowa. Students could then be chosen to represent their state at the national level if they score one of the highest in the state in an exam (Ppt, Excel or Word). This year Midland Drake Barchman was invited to compete nationally placing 2nd in PowerPoint in Iowa. DJ Soper placed 3rd right behind Drake. This is a great honor as Iowa has many students taking these exams each semester. Drake and DJ have received official certificates in other programs as well and certification badges. These badges are meant to be used on their future resume. They are definitely badges of honor. Congratulations!
