i could use some resume feedback and advice

hey guys, id like to get some feedback on my resume... currently im contemplating the following dilemas:
1) should i include my high school diploma in education, since i graduated in 96 (long ago) and having one is a requirement to go to an accredited school like the tech school i went to
2) i have some college experience but no degree... i went to a major university for 1 year, ran out of money and was forced to go to a community college, so id be listing these 2 schools under my education section and i feel that since i have no degree i might as well not list them since going from a major school to community college might reflect poorly on me
3) if i do include the highschool and college i wont be able to highlight my 4.0 gpa at the tech school because i cant list 1 gpa and not the rest, and the rest werent really impressive (id have to make some phone calls to even find out what they were)
4) should i include some kind of technical knowledge section or is some of the stuff listed under my employment + my tech degree and certs already cover those bases?

    I would leave off the highschool unless it is a vocational school and you were an a tech related program.

    I have a couple of years of regular college before leaving school and getting an IT job. I normally leave that off unless, I am applying for an IT job that fails in the chemistry field. I was a Chemistry major with an CS Minor at the time.

    thanks, i figured that would probably be the way to go since i can list my gpa for the school if i leave that as my only education

    do you think i need a skills / technical experience section?

    most definitely - you want to show yourself off as much as possible, without revealing too much, showing that you are, in fact, the best person for the job...also in my certificate section i have my CompTIA and Prosoft IDs after my certs so that the employer can check to see if i am really certified

    I have four(?) sections.

    Work Experience, Professional Certifications, Education, and technical Skills.
