Muncie Ivy Tech Community College students participated in the 2018 statewide Information Technology Spring Expo. The Expo included opportunities for students to network and distribute their resumes to industry leaders such as Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft and Wiley during the Career Expo.
During the IT Challenge, more than 100 students competed in eight different challenges. Ivy Tech Muncie students brought home two gold medals and a bronze medal in the competitions.
The gold medal was awarded to Ivy Tech Muncie students Amelia Tegerdine, Matthew Lewis, Kenneth Richhart and Taylor Robertson for their IT Support competition performance. Against the clock, 18 student teams of four were given the components and software to assemble a Microsoft machine and configure two operating systems.
The bronze went to Database Management team from Muncie’s Ivy Tech campus, which included Jared Davis, Brennen Sinclair and Anna Staggs. During this competition, 12 student teams of three were given a data base with tables. The teams were required to answer 10 query questions, create four graphs and one business briefing.
• Main Man Records is releasing the song "Take Your Pills," a reaction to the opioid crisis from the heart of America and the first-ever studio recording by Muncie's own
Mike Martin, this spring. The Limited Edition 45 RPM was released worldwide on Record Store Day, April 21, and is free digitally at michaelmartinband.com/pills.
The song "Take Your Pills" is based on the toll that prescription drugs, and then heroin and meth, took on Martin's family and friends.
Along with music, videos and more, Martin and his band The Beautiful Mess have links to addiction resources available on their site www.michaelmartinband.com/pills.
The Beautiful Mess formed in Charleston, S.C., where it was nominated for Country/Americana Band of The Year 2016.
