Students in Mrs. Whittekiend’s Exploring Computer Science class were given the exciting opportunity to earn Microsoft Office Specialist certifications in Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. These industry-recognized tests allow students to demonstrate that they have the skills needed to get the most out of Office. According to microsoft.com, holding a MOS certification can earn an entry-level business employee as much as $16,000 more in annual salary than their non-certified peers. We are very proud of these students and the hard work they put into passing these rigorous tests!

Friday, October 14th, students in Mrs. Whittekiend's Business Management classes got to spend time with Scot Rasband, owner of Chick-fil-A in Spanish Fork. He shared his experience with buying a Chick-fil-A franchise, the steps he had to take to get his restaurant location up and running, and, to the students delight, he gave everyone a delicious chocolate chip cookie. The key takeaway from his presentation was: "Figure out what you value most and build a life and career around those values." It was a rewarding experience for students to hear first hand from a successful entrepreneur.
