1st Annual Crown Point High School Junior/Senior Career Fair

Ashley Stokes, Nicky Rodriguez, and Stacy Drohosky had the opportunity to share court reporting with juniors and seniors at Crown Point High School during their 1st Annual Career Fair. Students had the opportunity to sit down and “feel” what it is like to “write” on the steno machine. They also learned about the many career opportunities available to stenographers. They were such a big hit, students were telling their friends to visit them.

Nicky educated students about court reporting while Stacy demonstrated her realtime skills. Students were also able to give steno a try by taking a steno quiz. Students finishing first in their class received a goodie bag. All students who matched all ten steno words with their English words received sweet treats.

Indiana School Counselor Association

Peachy Nicodemus Evans and her husband, Gary Evans, attended this annual event and educated high school and middle school counselors in Indiana about the careers of court reporting and captioning.
Here is what Peachy had to say: “It was so much fun being an exhibitor and representing StenoStrides on behalf of Indiana court reporters at the Indiana School Counselor Association conference at the Marriott East, Indianapolis. 650 attendees, not including the exhibitors. What a big turnout! The refreshment table was right behind our table, so people were always stopping by, not only because they saw the steno machine and the chocolates (first day, we were the only table with chocolates) but also those big glow-in-the-dark highlighters!”
