Rachel Regen: Future Dietitian
[cid:image004.jpg at 01D20A74.61ABD160]Rachel Regen, a graduate of Sky View High School, participated in a CTE Internship during her senior year of high school at the Utah State University (USU) Fueling Station, in the field of dietetics. During her internship she gained an understanding of the importance of good nutrition. "Due to this experience, my knowledge has grown in the field of dietetics and what athlete nutrition is all about. At the Fueling Station, I learned new recipes and was able to create my own recipes for the athletes to eat," said Rachel.

Rachel also received advice from the students attending USU about how to prepare for the dietetics program. "As I head to USU this fall, I feel confident in what classes I need to take and other activities I should be participating in. The USU students helped me know what I need to do to prepare to be accepted into the program, and excel in it. This internship has helped me learn more about my future and educate others in their lives to feel their best. The future looks happy and healthy."

Become a Certified Microsoft Office Specialist
A Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) is an individual who is certified in Microsoft Office programs-Word, Excel, and [Male Student]  PowerPoint. Students throughout Utah have the opportunity to become a certified Microsoft Office Specialist while taking business and marketing courses in middle/jr. high and high school. Last year, over 17,000 students across the state were certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist.

Gunner Harward, a student at Mountain Crest High School, became certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. When asked what motivated him to earn a MOS certification he said, "I honestly wanted to get better with all the Microsoft Office programs. I had a brief understanding of them before I took the certification, but now I have greatly exceeded my understanding. It is very helpful in school to know what and how to use the programs."

When asked what he would say to a friend who is considering taking an MOS exam Gunner responded, "I would say that it is worth it because it helps out very much with school. It gives you a better understanding of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, so it could give you a better score on an assignment."

Plan now to become a certified Microsoft Office Specialist. Talk to your school counselor or business and marketing teacher about how to prepare to take a MOS certification exam.

Emeli Flores: CTE Pathway Completer and Future Cosmetologist
[Emelie Flores]Emeli Flores, a graduate of Ogden High School, participated in the CTE Skilled and Technical Sciences Cosmetology/Barbering Pathway. By successfully completing the required foundation courses and suggested elective courses, Emily was recognized at graduation by the state of Utah, Ogden School District, and Ogden High School and was presented with a CTE Secondary Pathway Completer Award.

When asked how the Cosmetology/Barbering Pathway prepared her for life after high school Emeli responded, "Completing the CTE Pathway prepared me very well for my future. I've learned to face stress and pressure, learned to overcome challenges. I'm well prepared to face the challenges of work and life in the future. The Pathway has prepared me to be even more responsible for college and for my career. I've learned many interesting things throughout my three high school years. School does prepare us, in many ways. It prepares us for life. It helps to nurture and build strong character in ourselves."

[Utah State Board of Education Seal]The Utah State Office of Education (USOE) is now formally called the Utah State Board of Education (USBE). The name change took effect July 1, 2016. "This change unifies us not just in purpose but in name and formalizes work done over the past few years to create one team and one voice," said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson.

The Utah State Board of Education requests that stakeholder groups change language in correspondence and formal documents accordingly, print and Web. Read the press release HERE<http://schoolboard.utah.gov/news/utah-state-board-of-education-and-staff-to-use-one-name>.
