Local student earns Wyoming's first computer science micro credential
February 16, 2023
Jon Thompson, a sophomore at Expedition Academy High School, has become the first student in Wyoming to earn a Computer Science Micro Credential.
Jon earned the credential in the Hardware and Software content area.
The Student Micro Credential program, sponsored by the Wyoming Department of Education, consists of areas (or "stacks") of computer science skills and knowledge. After demonstrating proficiency, a student earns a credential that they can put on a resume for a job application. This proves to an employer that the student has the skills for an entry level job in that related field.
Jon is the son of Michael and Stacy Anderson and Jeremy Thompson.
"Congratulations to Jon and the many other students yet to come that are on their way to receiving such certifications in the future of computer science in Green River," said Ralph Obray, the principal of Expedition Academy.
