Xander Sunday is the first student in our Kelso Middle Schools to pass the MS Excel Certification exam. In fact, this also makes him the first to pass all three, PowerPoint, Word, and Excel, which makes him a “Microsoft Office Specialist – Associate”. Mrs. Hatfield proudly presented Xander his plaque this morning. Great job Xander!
