Russellville High celebrates Microsoft Office-certified students

The Russellville High School business department offers industry-recognized Microsoft Office credentials to students. Through a program with the Alabama State Department of Education, RHS is able to be a part of the Certiport Microsoft Specialist Certification program, and through this program, Dr. AnnaKay Holland was awarded a site license to administer exams for students to earn Microsoft Office certification.
