WHHS students complete social media certification exam

A total of 17 students in the Kris Freeman’s second block Social Media and Analytics Class at White House High School completed the certification exam through Gipper Inc. 

The students have been using Gipper, an online social media and graphics platform, to create personal and school branding throughout the fall semester, and learning about preparation for social media experiences in athletics, academics and business. For the first time at our school, students earned social media certification through the Gipper Learn certification exam offered through the school’s subscription to the service. Students can register for an account through their school subscription and take the certification exam at no additional charge.

About Gipper Certification Course:​

Nowadays, an effective social strategy is critical to every athletic department. Why? If you are not telling your story on social media, someone else is. You want to make sure to be in control of that narrative and share all of the great things coming out of your program. On top of that, an effective social strategy will help: improve communication with stakeholders, grow your athletic brand, drive new revenue to better support your program.​However, high school athletic departments have the most teams to cover, but unfortunately the fewest resources to do so.

This course has been put together with an understanding of that reality and will provide the key knowledge and actionable steps to create and execute on an effective social media strategy that will work for your program. Join Gipper CEO, Matthew Glick, and invest in your program’s growth and your career by learning how to develop brand guidelines, manage official social accounts, create stunning visual content, and more!


The Social Media and Analytics class at WHHS is offered as part of the Career and Technical Education department in business and marketing.
