Please join us in congratulating Styles Irvin Upshaw, a 7th-grade t.Lab student, for realizing the Microsoft Word Specialist Certification on Friday, February 5, 2021! Styles is the youngest t.Lab student to realize this accomplishment and level of formal computer competency. He has exhibited diligence and patience in pursuit of this meaningful goal. He committed himself to independent study, leveraging the Jasperactive tool to develop his Microsoft suite skills, and taking the certification examination on one occasion before realizing success on the second try!
As parents and leaders within our communities, we should take heed of Styles’ success! A t.Lab student since kindergarten, Styles works additional hours each week beyond normal classroom requirements to develop his academic skills. We should be moved to eradicating mediocrity and only accepting excellence from our students!
A t.Lab student since 2013, Styles is a bright student with unlimited potential. Styles has a 3.5 GPA and leads his t.Lab study circle while seeking a Khan academy computer science certification. As well, Styles plans to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and pursue a career as a Lawyer. He is currently involved in completing a literary research project titled “Ethics and the Law.” We expect that Styles will complete his research and publish by May 1, 2021. Please join us in congratulating Styles Upshaw and his parents and grandparents!
