Power Automate Desktop - Excel Data to PowerPoint

I am currently working on a Graduation PowerPoint for a high school. 

Each student will have a slide in the PowerPoint presentation.


All of the data about a student is in a row in an Excel table.


Can I automate the transfer of the data from the row to a new slide for that student?


Can I then duplicate the original slide and transfer the following rows of the Excel table for the entire graduating class?

Or you use a PowerPoint add-on like:
