Just one year after being named a Microsoft Imagine Academy, MRCC’s information technology program has made the step up to the Microsoft School designation.

“Becoming a part of the Microsoft Schools program is an amazing opportunity to connect and engage with leaders in education around the world,” said Travis Hueston, MRCC’s instructor of information technology. “We look forward to sharing our experiences with other schools in our community and the world to continue finding innovative ways to equip our students with the proper tools needed for success inside and outside of the classroom.”

As well as being recognized on a global scale for their innovative approach to educating tomorrow’s workforce, Microsoft Schools receive additional collaboration opportunities with other schools around the world; access to professional development opportunities; access to Microsoft Innovative Educators Experts to help drive innovation and to support staff, peers, and students; and more.

Enrollment in the MRCC information technology program is open to all juniors and seniors at participating schools in Grant County. Interested students should contact their school’s counselor, or call Nate McNeely at MRCC at 765-664-9091.
