Veritext Legal Solutions, the leader in deposition and litigation support solutions, announces the company has expanded its scholarship program to include two schools in Texas: Del Mar College in Corpus Christi and the Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting in Houston. This expansion is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to grow the court reporting profession.
Veritext partners with accredited schools and organizations to provide scholarships, introductory classes, theory and speed-building to students interested in exploring the career of a court reporter and studying to be part of the profession.
In addition to the latest scholarships in Texas, the company offers scholarships at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta; Anoka Tech College, Anoka, Minnesota; College of Court Reporting, online; and has plans to extend the support to more schools in 2020.
“We are thrilled to be able to add Texas to our list of scholarships,” states Nancy Josephs, CEO of Veritext Legal Solutions. “This is a region that has been hit hard with the stenographer shortage, and we will do all that we can to get more professionals interested in this field.”
Veritext is strongly committed to strengthening and advancing the profession of court reporting. The company’s recent contributions to the stenographic profession include providing scholarships for aspiring stenographers, becoming a major supporter of Project Steno – raising over $25,000 in 2019 – offering NCRA accredited Continuing Education (CEU courses) for stenographers, hosting Realtime Theory I & II through Baltimore City Community College and Delaware State University, collaborating with and supporting countless national and regional associations and participating in the NCRA A to Z™ program.
