Thomas Receives Microsoft Office Specialist Master Certification in Office 2013

Congratulations to Central High School senior, Tylik Thomas who recently earned his Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Master certification in Office 2013!  This credential provides employers proof that individuals have gained broader, deeper Microsoft Office expertise.  As a MOS 2013 Master, individuals differentiate themselves from their peers by possessing this professional recognition that is accepted around the world.  To earn the MOS Master certification in Office 2013, you must pass all of four the required exams for a specific track.  Tylik completed the Word 2013 track earning the Word Expert (Parts 1 and 2), Excel and PowerPoint, as his fourth elective certification.  Earning a MOS Master Certification demonstrates the deepest level of skills necessary to proficiently use Office programs.  By becoming a Microsoft Office Master, an individual’s knowledge, efficiency and productivity increase thereby elevating professional value and advancement.  As a Microsoft Office Specialist Master, Tylik is prepared for a successful future in his academic and professional endeavors.

Central High School hosted their First Food Truck Rodeo

Central High School hosted their First Food Truck Rodeo and Holiday Bazaar this past Saturday, and event coordinator Sharon Bolan stated, “It was a great success.”  She continued, “We couldn’t have asked for better weather and we are already looking to doing this again next year.” Mrs. Bolan said that the event raised $1,800 that will benefit the Salvation Army Christmas Angels. She noted that the plan is to use the money to provide for 14 Christmas Angels with each of them getting around $100 in Christmas gifts. The additional money that is left over will be used for any items that may be larger such as bicycles or it may go toward helping area students that are in need during the holidays. The event featured food trucks and other food items as well as vendors, an antique car show, face painting, a corn hole tournament, and live musical performances from the CHS Chorus, CHS Band and Tobacco Road Band. Mrs. Bolan stated,” It was great to have so much support for this event. The students really stepped up and helped sell tickets and we even had vendors that donated their sales back to our cause.” She also pointed out that the CHS Cares organization is responsible for helping organize and implement the event and that anyone affiliated with Central High School can be part o the CHS Cares group. This group has made donations in the past to local charities and events as well as having made donations to other state and national needs such as to Haiti and to Appomattox residents after tornadoes hit that area. It has also been integral in providing positive support and messages with the school as part of he overall anti-bullying initiative.
