Dunbar High School Announces Microsoft National Champion
Congratulations to Dunbar High School freshman, Kevin Dimaculangan, who won the 2018 Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Championship for Excel 2016. Kevin competed against more than 320,000 total entrants. He earned a $3000 grand prize and an all-expenses-paid trip to compete against challengers from over 120 other countries in the 2018 MOS World Championship in Orlando, Florida, July 29 – Aug. 1, 2018.
Kevin is a perfect example of a young man who is driven towards success,” says Principal Carl Burnside. “I am a believer that the exceptional staff we have here at Dunbar, coupled with our acclaimed technology programs and the International Baccalaureate courses, that you will see more students from Dunbar accomplishing many other extraordinary achievements.”
Kevin is the ninth Dunbar High School student to place in the top three in the Microsoft National Championship, and he is the fourth contender for the Microsoft worldwide competition. Dunbar High School has already had three top performers for the Microsoft Worldwide Championship, including Tyler Mills, who placed first in 2014.
“It was no surprise to me that Kevin was the winner. His talents go far beyond just knowing Microsoft excel; he is a 1st place state champion on our school’s math team,” explains IT Programs Manager Denise Spence. “Kevin has earned around 12 technology certifications already, including getting a perfect score for the Microsoft Excel Expert certification. No doubt that you will hear Kevin Dimaculangan’s name a lot in the coming years.”
