Achievement is the expectation for students enrolled in Dunbar High School’s Academy for Technology Excellence, and students continue to make that expectation a reality each day. Recent graduate Ian Sexton took 1st place in the Excel 2010 category at the Microsoft Office National Championship last week, earning a spot to compete at the upcoming worldwide competition in Texas.
Current students Bennett Hunter and Tyler Millis also found success at the national competition. Bennett took 2nd place in PowerPoint 2013 and Tyler placed 2nd in Word 2010.
“Dunbar High School continues to represent not only Lee County Schools and the State of Florida well at these competitions, but has been responsible for leading the way for the United States to showcase its talented young people on the global stage as well,” said Carl Burnside, Principal. “We have had two winners at the Microsoft Office World Competition; Tyler Millis, who achieved 1st place in 2014 and Juliana Toyloy-Stanton, who earned 3rd place in 2010. We are wishing Ian the best of luck at the Microsoft Office World Competition in August 2015.”
“I was excited to learn that out of 340,000+ competitors, Dunbar High School students earned three of the nine podium spots in their categories at the national competition,” said Denise Spence, IT Programs Manager. “This is an accomplishment that makes you feel amazed and inspired.”
