(Phoenix, Arizona) July 17, 2017: Coash & Coash, Inc. is proud to announce that Jordan Jackson of the Gateway Community College court reporting program has been awarded the first annual $1,000 Coash & Coash, Inc. Court Reporting Scholarship.
Student candidates were nominated by the faculty of the Gateway Community College court reporting program. The criteria for selection were machine steno speed level, length in the program, attendance, and monetary need. The candidates wrote letters and were interviewed by Coash & Coash, Inc.’s Chairman, Gerard T. Coash, RPR, RMR, CRR, and President, Jerry Coash, Jr.
“We are very pleased to award our first annual scholarship to Jordan. She has progressed through the program and passed her speed tests at a very good pace, and I’m confident she is well on her way to becoming an awesome court reporter,” says Jerry Coash, Jr. “The country is facing a severe and growing shortage of qualified court reporters. Unfortunately, the cost of education can get in the way of a great student meeting her goals, so this is one way we can help with that.”
