Kemper County Platinum WorkKeys Students honored


The Kemper County School District's Board of Education met at the last board meeting to honor six exemplary students from John C. Stennis CTE who earned ACT WorkKeys platinum certifi­cations following state-wide testing last month.

Kemper County students who received the platinum certifications are An­gelique Dailey, Javon Gibbs, Lashanti Harring­ton, Aareia Jenkins, Alfred Love, and Adrianna Mc­Graw.

The ACT WorkKeys Na­tional Career Readiness Certificate (ACT NCRC) is a job skills assessment that provides employers with information they believe are critical to job success. Students who earn the ACT NCRC have an advan­tage when applying for in­dustry type jobs because it shows proof of job skills via the certification.

“The results of these as­sessments should not be taken lightly," said Hilute Hudson, Superintendent of Kemper County School District. "These are clear indicators that our stu­dents are college and ca­reer ready.”

ACT WorkKeys awarded 60 students overall from Kemper County School District with platinum, gold, silver and bronze cer­tificates.

Gold certification recipi­ents are: Ty’Quavian An­derson, Kamyra Brown, Sha’Kanye Darden, Ja’Quan Geeter, Reslyn Ramsey, and Kaja Simonds.

Silver certification recipi­ents include; Damiyah Bester, Trinity Bester, Devin Bourrage, Brekaylah Grace, Jamar Grace, JaMiya Grace, Kaylah Hearn, Donquavian Hick­man, Tasharra Johnson, Manasia Odom, Quintay­jah Reed, Aaron Steele, Precious Stone, Kamri Tate, and Ty’Zavier Williams.

“I am overwhelmingly pleased to see that our students performed well on these assessments and the amount of preparation that was provided to help them be successful,” said Hudson.

John C. Stennis CTE plans to host an awards ceremony at the end of the school year to honor all student achievements from its programs.
