Ponchatoula High School students, Daniel Wall and Aiden Dixon, ranked first and second in the state respectively for certification in Microsoft Office Specialist in PowerPoint. Both students scored perfect and were ranked on the state level using the amount of time a student takes to complete the exam as the criteria. Their hard work earned them an invitation to the National Championship held in Orlando, Florida. Unfortunately, due to COVID concerns, neither will be attending the event. However, Ponchatoula High is proud of their efforts and is currently ranked #1 in the state for Microsoft Office PowerPoint Certification.
