Three students write their way to CASE scholarships

Three court reporting students were recognized for receiving CASE Scholarships during the Awards Luncheon at the NCRA Convention & Expo based on their winning entries in an essay writing contest entitled “The Probable Secret of Success in Court Reporting School.” A total of 12 nominations were received and were cited as all being thoughtfully written. Recipients included:

Elisa Greenwood, a student at the Business Informatics Center in Valley Steam, N.Y., who received a $1,500 scholarship;

Robert Leifer, a student at the College of Court Reporting in Hobart, Ind., who received a $1,000 scholarship; and

Joan Yeatts, a student at the College of Court Reporting in Hobart, Ind., who received a $500 scholarship.

NCRA’s Council on Approved Student Education is responsible for the certification and development of court reporter student training and education programs and, as such, supports students on their path to becoming court reporting and captioning professionals.
