Congratulations to Paula Pearsall and Renae Swanson for passing the MS Word 2010 certification exam. This is an online exam from Certiport that takes about 50 minutes and tests them on their word processing skills using MS WORD 2010. The exam is worth 1,000 points and the students need 700 to pass. The students get a certificate and this certification looks great on a resume or grant.

Pearsall is the daughter of Lois Johnson and Richard Pearsall of Ponemah. She is in the 10th grade and is active in basketball, FCCLA, track and Spanish club and is the class secretary. Her plans for after graduation are to go into nursing or become a pediatrician.

Swanson is the daughter of Wally and Angie Swanson of Kelliher. She is a senior at Kelliher School and is active in 4 H, is the Beltrami County 4H council reporter and is a helper at the VFW pancake breakfasts. Her plans for next year are to attend Northwest Technical College in Bemidji.

Last spring, Dakota Johnson passed the MS Word 2007 certification exam. He is son of Buddy and Marie Hillman and has been working at the Hillman Store for the past three years while attending school. Johnson is a senior and plans to join the Local 49ers after graduation.
