The Huntington News has reported that Huntington Junior College, a comprehensive, open-admission private institution located in Huntington, W.Va., and Cabell County Schools have launched a pilot program in realtime reporting at Huntington High School. The program allows participating students the opportunity to complete up to 48 quarter hours of college credit before they graduate and earn an associate’s degree in realtime reporting. The degree, which is certified by the National Court Reporters Association, prepares students for a high-tech, potentially well-paying professional career in specialized fields that include judicial reporting and captioning/CART.
“We are very excited to partner with Cabell County schools and pilot this program to students at Huntington High School,” said Dr. Catherine Snoddy, president of Huntington Junior College. “This is an opportunity for high school students to take college-level classes while in high school, giving them a jump-start on beginning a new and exciting career.”
