Since 1984, College of Court Reporting (CCR) has developed a reputation as an innovator in post-secondary education.  The school is thinking outside the box once again by lowering its tuition for students who wish to attend school onsite full-time.  Starting for the Fall 2014 semester, CCR will cut its tuition rate from $350 per credit hour down to $175 per credit hour for local students

From becoming one of the first colleges in the nation to offer an online court reporting program to developing a unique method of assessing students’ progress, CCR has gone against the grain to create the best learning environment possible for its students.  Now, the school has recognized the need for new reporters in the Chicagoland area, especially in the areas of Official Reporting and the growing field of Broadcast Captioning.  Over the course of the next 15 years, the state of Illinois has estimated it will need to hire almost 400 new court reporters as approximately 75% of its staff is retiring.  To meet this need, the College seeks to increase its enrollment by lowering its tuition.

HOBART, IN -- From its home base in Northwest Indiana, College of Court Reporting (CCR) offers an associate’s degree program for aspiring court reporters and has been doing so since 1984. What began as an educational entrepreneurship in Kay Moody’s living room is now a successful hybrid online and onsite school, accredited by ACICS and certified by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). CCR offers both academic courses and hands-on skill-development courses that take stenography students from writing 0 to 225 words per minute.

And, yes, court reporting is still relevant; it’s actually in demand, as pointed out in TRIBLive’s article about Pennsylvania’s fleet of retiring reporters.

Kay Moody and studentHobart, IN—College of Court Reporting (CCR) is about to reach its 30th year of operation. Kay Moody (pictured standing with a student to the right), founder of the college, never dreamed that what started as a small school in her home could have turned into the online innovator CCR is today. With over 250 online and onsite students, CCR would now like to invite the community to see what their support has allowed the CCR family to contribute to education.

Over the years, the college has revised its curriculum to meet the high demands of today’s technology. CCR teaches all the courses necessary for a court reporting career, and students also have the opportunity to enroll in additional courses for broadcast captioning or communication access realtime translation (CART) reporting, which aids the deaf and hard-of-hearing. The school’s growth is largely attributed to its ability to innovate and develop instruction with technology in mind.

Hobart, IN--Last fall, College of Court Reporting (CCR) was one of four colleges in the nation to receive a U.S. Department of Education's "Training for Realtime Writers" grant. CCR will use grant funds to train and place students in the field to help meet the national demand for qualified court reporters and realtime writers. In addition, CCR will also grant 14 scholarships for students with disabilities to use in order to purchase specialized software and equipment.

The scholarships amounts are up to $5,000 for each blind student to use to purchase specialized software and equipment. Earlier this year, CCR awarded $5,000 to one of its qualified students. In total, up to $75,000 will be awarded to qualified students. Because people with disabilities have an extremely low employment rate and live at or below poverty levels in comparison to people without disabilities, we are very proud to offer this award to assist these students. Many people with disabilities cannot afford specialized software and equipment. By providing seed money to help them enroll, CCR expects to enroll and place more students with disabilities.

Hobart, IN--College of Court Reporting (CCR) is proud to announce that one of its very own students is the recipient of the National Court Reporting Foundation’s 2013 Frank Sarli Scholarship. In order to receive this scholarship, the nominee must have met a specific list of criteria and, according to the NCRF website, “must possess all the qualities exemplified by a professional court reporter, including professional attitude, demeanor, dress and motivation.” In 2013, the winning nominee is Justine Kiechel.

Justine is an online student from Pennsylvania. She learned the Moody Method theory of computerized machine shorthand in CCR’s Fall 2010 semester and is now writing at 225 words per minute. With just a few requirements left to complete before graduation, Justine has already demonstrated that she will represent the college and the profession well in the working world.

Hobart, IN---The College of Court Reporting (CCR) recently participated in National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, a grassroots effort to raise awareness about the professions of court reporting and broadcast captioning. One way that professionals were able to show how invaluable court reporting is to our country was to contribute their skills to the Veteran’s History Project. Reporters all across the country have banded together for over 12 years to produce transcripts of the oral histories of our veterans. Deborah Cohen-Rojas, a CCR graduate, was one of those reporters who volunteered her abilities.

In a recent news broadcast on WGN Chicago, Deb can be seen writing on her steno machine to the sound of a former soldier’s legacy. She then produced a transcript that was uploaded to the Veteran’s History Project website. This flawless record of personal histories might have otherwise been lost. There are now over 85,000 oral histories preserved by the Library of Congress, courtesy of court reporters much like Deb.

Hobart, IN--- Each year the Illinois Court Reporters Association holds a scholarship essay contest. The author of the first place essay receives a $1,000 scholarship, and the authors of the second and third place essays receive $500 and $300 scholarships. To apply, students are required to submit a one-page essay on “Court Reporting School: My Own Survival Guide.” The College of Court Reporting is pleased to announce that the 2012 first and second place award recipients are College of Court Reporting students Shannon Barnes and Susan Kemph.

Ms. Barnes enrolled with the College of Court Reporting in our Summer 2010 semester after completing an Associate’s degree in Business. She learned the Moody Method steno theory as a new student and was writing at 120 words per minute within the first year of her court reporting education. Ms. Barnes is a perennial honor student and has been nominated on several occasions for the Student of the Month distinction. Her instructors never run out of positive things to say about her work ethic and drive to become a court reporter. The first place award certainly found an appropriate recipient in Ms. Barnes as she is most deserving.

Hobart, IN--- Stacy Drohosky, College of Court Reporting graduate, was recently awarded the United States District Court’s Northern District of Indiana’s 2012 Professionalism Award. Not only was she nominated for the award by Peggy Guernsey, District Clerk for the Northern District of Indiana, but Stacy was also voted the number one reporter in the system by the court reporters of the same district. Ms. Guernsey had this to say of Stacy:

Stacy promptly accepts requests for Court Reporting services for judicial officers (Judge Cherry and others) when not otherwise reporting for her own Court (Judge Moody). These trials are sometimes not only multiple days, but out-of-Division (Lafayette). She also completes detention hearing and/or motion hearing transcripts in magistrate cases where FTR is used when requested by counsel.

The Court receives competent, prompt, Court Reporter Services without interruption of flow of Court proceedings. The ability to have a Real Time Reporter makes for efficient work presentation and judicial proceedings. Stacy is saving the District and taxpayers large sums of money that otherwise would be required for a contract reporter.

Stacy is always pleasant, cooperative, dependable, and conducts herself with professionalism. She performs long work days without complaining. Daily trial transcripts are often requested and provided without delay. She is very pleasant to work with and fulfills the Court’s/Clerk’s Office mission by providing quality, courteous, and prompt service with a commitment to professionalism, teamwork, and efficiency.
