WICHITA, Kan. 6/6/01. Coalition Computing is pleased to announce that Alex Ball—a resident Network and Programming Analyst at Coalition Computing and a Wichita Heights High School student—recently earned top place in Networking Concepts at the 2001 National Leadership Conference held in Anaheim, CA, in May earlier this year. Alex further demonstrated his technological expertise as he secured second place in both the C++ and Visual Basic programming categories.
The National Leadership Conference is an annual competition sponsored by Business Professionals of America—an organization dedicated to the preparation of a world-class workforce through the advancement of leadership, citizenship, academic and technological skills.
Each year, students from around the country have the ability to demonstrate their workplace skills learned through business education curriculums and to display those talents in competition at the annual National Leadership Conference. Students’ workplace skills are assessed in five primary business areas: Financial Services, Administrative Support, Information Services/Systems, Management/Marketing and Human Resources.
“Not only is Alex an outstanding student at Wichita Heights, he is also a true asset to us at Coalition Computing. His wealth of knowledge in networking and programming concepts has greatly enhanced the level of support we can provide our customers,” said Jim Johnson, President of Coalition Computing. “We are very proud of his accomplishments both at the academic and business level,” Johnson said.
