Norwalk High School Seniors Achieve Platinum Status on the NCRC Exam Submitted by Ashley Priekset The precious metal of platinum signifies excellence and high status. The platinum name was attributed to 2 seniors at Norwalk High School. These two seniors achieved a score of 6 or higher on the three NCRC (National Career Readiness Certificate) administered exams: Applied math, Workplace documents, and Graphic literacy. The NCRC tests the ability of students to be college- and career-ready. Skills tested are reading and using work-related documents, problem solving, critical thinking, interpreting information obtained from graphics, and performing mathematical operations in working environments. According to ACT Workkeys, only 1 percent of test takers across the country achieve platinum status, which signifies a readiness to learn about or perform in 99 percent of existing occupations. Students must score at the highest level in all three tests to achieve the platinum status. It is exciting to have two students achieve this honor. The high achieving Norwalk High School seniors are Hannah Jameson and Jack Riordan. Hannah plans to study communications and Jack plans to study criminal justice this coming fall. The NCRC is among ACT's array of tests. We partner with Iowa Workforce Development who provides the materials, and the test is administered during the internship class. Employers can use results from the NCRC as concrete proof of the skills prospective employees have. Congratulations to Hannah and Jack! 1 SCHOOL AND SPORTS PAGES 1 SPONSORED BY: *BORST COUNSELING SERVICES 240-9474 *EDWARD JONES Benjamin Pearson 981-1800 *FOUR SEASONS AUTO WASH 981-4454 *HASKIN CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC 981-0556 *N/WARREN TOWN & COUNTY NEWS 981-0406 *NORWALK FAMILY DENTISTRY 256-9000 *NORWALK LIONS CLUB 981-0432 *OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATES 981-0224 *PHOTO PRINTING, INC 989-3251 *TRUBANK 285-4900
