Tech offers new certification

“It’s really for students in any area that have a requirement to keep information secure, to have a secure network,” Lumpkin said. “This training will help them in how to do that process. There are a lot of different areas that would have an interest in information assurance.”

Area schools out until 2008

Bell suggests attending holiday programs within the community and at churches that include singing.
“To me, there is no better way to engage children in vocabulary,” Bell said. “I encourage parents to take children to community activities with live performances with vocalists and multiple instruments. It may even perk the interest of a child to take up music at sometime during their schooling.”
