DCT 'Student of the Week'
BY JAMI MASSEY
This week's DCT "Student of the Week" is Mollie Landers. Mollie is a senior at MCHS. She is a professional dog groomer assistant at Little Furry Friends.
Mollie started out in this position two-and-a-half months ago. While working there, Mollie has learned how to wash and brush dogs. She is currently learning how to clip dogs.
DCT has been beneficial to Mollie.
"It gives me more time to be at work and learn more stuff that I need to know," Mollie stated.
Her supervisor, Arnold Brown, commented: "Mollie is very attentive to her job. She enjoys dealing with every aspect of her position and is learning how to deal with the clients, answering phones and scheduling appointments."

At Madison County Middle School we have three new computer labs. We have an Academic Lab, a Title I Lab and a Keyboarding Lab.
The Academic Computer Lab has programs such as Advance Learning Systems (ALS), Microsoft Works, Power Point, World Book Medical, Typing Tutor, English Poetry, Creative Writer and the Georgia Career Information System. There are also educational games that you can play such as Carmen Sandiego. These computers have the Windows 98 operating systems and are IBM compatible. This lab is run by Mrs. Pam Hall.
The Title I computer lab is run by Mrs. Janet Simmons. She also has several programs such as the Advanced Learning System on these computers.
The Keyboarding lab is run by Mr. Booth. He teaches keyboarding to most all students in the school. He uses the Keywords program to help students learn the fundamentals of typing on the computer. He also has Windows on these computers.
Our school is fortunate to have many computers and wonderful computer teachers to help us learn more about the fast changing world of technology.
