NCRF supports the next generation of reporters

In 2014, NCRF awarded scholarships to three students and a grant to a new working court reporter. Two students, Kelly Greer of the Community College of Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, Penn., and Rebecca Russo of Gadsden State Community College, Gadsden, Ala., received NCRF’s Student Intern Scholarships; each received $1,000. Jessica D’Agostino of Lake Worth, Fla., was awarded NCRF’s 2014 Frank Sarli Memorial Scholarship, and Shannon Bevin, a court reporter from Whitestone, N.Y., is the 2014 recipient of NCRF’s New Professional Reporter Grant; they each received $2,000.
