Student Love Steno Nights – thank you, donors!

By Debbie Kriegshauser

 The Student/Teacher Committee-sponsored Students Love Steno Nights during NCRA Court Reporting & Captioning Week was a huge hit this year with our three virtual seminars/get-togethers. The comments from students have been pouring in, and we can’t thank themenough for taking the time to give us a review. “This has been the BEST (by far) student Zoom that I’ve ever attended, so many great reporters with so much great experience. Thank you all for being so open and honest and bringing so much to the table!” said Candice Kielion-Radam of Arlington Career Institute in Arlington, Texas.

Tyger Recchia of Green River College in Auburn, Wash., also reached out to the committee afterwards. “I just want to thank you for the fantastic week you put together,” she said. “You inspired me with your energy and your enthusiasm. I learned so much and was able to connect with several captioners, which was amazing. I have only wanted to be a captioner since I entered the program, so thank you for allowing me to connect with so many beautiful people who lit up my life!”

We also were given the opportunity to pass out many outstanding prizes to the students on each of the three nights, and that’s something we couldn’t have done without the generosity of these folks I’d like to mention. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts from everyone on this committee for your loyalty and support. The students LOVED the prizes! Many thanks go out to:
