These students passed this certification this week and should be congratulated on their hard work. The MTA certification is a brand new certification from Microsoft and is very close to the Network + training that we conducted the first half of this academic year. Hopefully, this certification is the first of many as these Microsoft Certified Professionals continue to prepare for a rewarding career in Information Technology. More information can be found on the MTA certification at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mta.aspx .

Country Auto Center helped raise $550.00 for Riverside Intermediate School with Chrysler’s "Drive for the Kids" program. The fundraising event was held on May 5, 2011.
Fifty-five parents and guests each earned a $10 contribution to the school from Chrysler by taking a brief test drive in a Town & Country, the companies award winning minivan. Country Auto Center supplied the vehicles, and volunteers from the dealership were on hand to assist in the fundraising drives.
“Drive for the Kids is a mutually beneficial program. We’re pleased to support our local schools, and enjoy demonstrating a terrific, world class product,” said Joe Martin Jr., owner of Country Auto Center. “Parents are genuinely interested in testing our Chrysler minivan with all the advanced safety, technology, and economy features; and we are happy to help raise extra dollars for the school. We all work together for the kids. Everyone has a great time.”
Chrysler supports schools in the communities where the company does business. Since 1993, when Chrysler introduced Drive for the Kids, Chrysler dealers have worked with parents and educators in communities across the nation. Chrysler has contributed an estimated $4 million, directly to local schools, for student needs from playgrounds and field trips to reading programs and computers. Chrysler is proud of this tradition of community involvement.
There are three distances to race this year! Participants can register to run/walk a 5K (3.1 miles), a 10K (6.2 miles) or a 15K (9.3 miles). The race starts behind Oliver Ford-Lincoln in Plymouth. The run/walk will take place through the Green Way Trails/Plymouth Centennial Park.
One female and one male winner for each running category will receive a free vacation for two to Las Vegas, Cancun or a Carnival Cruise (airfare is not included).
