STC Students Excel in Athens

Southeastern Tech students in the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) attended the organization’s 2012 Certification and Development Workshop/Student Conference in Athens.

“The conference allows the students to interact with other professional and student IAAP chapters and they are able to attend workshops,” said Jernigan.

Lisa Buchans, Carolyn Hand, and LaDonna York traveled with IAAP advisor Tina Jernigan and competed in four competitions: Microsoft Office 2010, Grammar Rules and Business Writing, Certified Administrative Professional and Organizational Management (CAP-OM) Mock Exam, and Public Speaking.

The students rounded out the top three in Grammar Rules and Business Writing, with Buchans taking first, Hand second, and York third. Buchans also won CAP-OM Mock Exam, with York placing second.

“I’m very proud of our students. They did an outstanding job and always represent STC well each year,” said Jernigan.

With around 40,000 members and approximately 600 chapters worldwide, IAAP is the world's largest association for administrative support staff. The association partners with employers to promote professional excellence, and IAAP members strive to inspire and equip all administrative professionals to attain excellence.
