Three Lakes Student Earns Certificate for Office Skills

From: Marcia Latta

Jenna M., a Vocational and Educational Services for Older Youth (VESOY) student at Three Lakes High School, has earned a work skills certificate in computer applications and office systems.

Last year, she completed a four-course certificate program through Portland Community College that qualifies her for employment in office support careers. The courses included basic computer skills, keyboarding, beginning Microsoft Word and beginning Microsoft Excel. Jenna will apply those skills as a teacher’s assistant for a computer course during spring term.

“Jenna has worked hard to complete this office skills program, and we are delighted that she will be compensated for her efforts in a paid position,” said Principal Joy Koenig. “She is a great role model for the other students.”

The office certificate program is funded by the federal Opening Doors grant. Other certificate programs at the school include tractor safety, forklift, industrial cleaning, barista, food handlers, culinary arts, wildland firefighting, flagger, C-TECH and first aid/CPR training.

Three Lakes and Riverside high schools continue to develop college and career readiness programs for students, including college courses from PCC and LBCC to meet general education requirements or provide training in CTE fields.
