Our corporate partner +CompTIA was wowed by Women in Tech graduate Mary Ellen Foye after she earned perfect scores on her A+ exam -- so much so that they wrote this feature about her:  http://certification.comptia.org/news/13-03-25/Women_in_Tech_Grad_Earns_Perfect_CompTIA_A_Scores.aspx

Exciting. Our very 1st alum successfully completed the Google Apps 100 course. He'll advance to the next level to get certified. Go Raphael Garces!

Google provided a grant and leadership by the Google Enterprise team to launch the first-ever Google Apps training at Per Scholas. The first round of 20 Alumni are in the pilot now which consists of passing two courses to become Google Apps certified.

A thank you from today's graduating class Cycle 15:  

"To Ms. Brown aka Mama Brown, your frank and no nonsense exterior made us aware of what was at stake, and dictated the degree of seriousness we should take with this opportunity. Alternately, behind that disciplinary cover was an inviting, accessible and nurturing individual always willing to go the extra mile for her Brooklyn boys! For that we thank you, Ms. Brown!"

Starting a slow clap for Mr. Nathaniel Green. Not only is he one of the kindest individuals to come through our doors, he turned his internship at CS Technology into a massive success. He started a new job at JPMorgan Chase at the start of this month in Disaster Recovery. We could not be more proud. Congratulations, Mr. Green!
