Updated: January 12, 2018

Because of the exceptionally high score Dimiyah Johnson (pictured) received on her Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Word 2013 exam, she has been named Arkansas’s Champion and selected to compete in Certiport’s 2018 Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Championship at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Ga., June 13-15, 2018.
The Microsoft Office U.S. Championship presented by Certiport, Inc. is a competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® (2013 or 2016). Top students are invited to represent their respective states at the World Championship. Winners will continue to the World Championship.
The Microsoft Office Specialist Certification Exam is administered in the 9th grade CBA classes of Shauna Tipton and Meagan Garrison. This is an industry certification that proves skills and proficiency in Microsoft Office programs. Many employers use this exam as a hiring criterion and even send their employers to acquire this certification.
Dimiyah is the first AHS student to be invited in the three years the certification exams have been offered at AHS.
