Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Business and Technology
Professional/Lower Moreland High School senior, Anthony Sleptsov began his Senior Capstone Project for Lower Moreland High School on Monday, May 15, 2017 in EASTERN’s Business Office. As a second-year Business and Technology Professional student, he chose an asset inventory project for EASTERN’s Business Office because it would utilize his Excel, organizational and time management skills.
From now through early June, Anthony will be working five and a half hours every Tuesday in EASTERN’s Business Office researching and preparing an asset inventory report. This involved scanning all equipment asset tags throughout all fourteen programs, photographing each piece of equipment, and creating a database with each item included. The purpose of this project is to help the Business Office determine what we have, what we no longer have, what we need and what needs to be disposed of. Anthony will also continue his Business and Technology Professional program at EASTERN in the afternoon.
“Anthony is extremely involved with EASTERN’s student leadership organization, SkillsUSA. He is currently the Schoolwide Secretary. In this position, he creates spreadsheets for various fundraisers and places orders for school fundraisers,” said Marketa Crane, EASTERN’s Business and Technology Professional Instructor. “I feel
as though this is the ideal senior project for him and plays heavily to his strengths.”
After graduation from EASTERN and Lower Moreland High School, Anthony will attend Clarion University in the fall for Business Management and Marketing, with minors in Theater Performance and Acting, which he will continue to pursue until achieving his master’s degree.
EASTERN’s Business and Technology Professional program is the first step in preparing students for a career in a professional business environment, such as business administration, business management, customer service representative and various forms of administrative support. Students study the current Microsoft Office applications at intermediate and advanced levels and other communication technologies.
