The VCRA's long-awaited 2022 convention in Lynchburg, Virginia, was held on March 25-27, and we want to thank each and every attendee, speaker, board members and everyone else who helped make the weekend a success! It was so wonderful to once again meet face to face with our amazing court reporting community here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Congratulations to our award winners. Leslie Etheredge received the Tayloe Award in recognition of all that she has done for court reporting in Virginia. And the Carolyn O'Connor Education Fund Scholarship went to Loretta Berrigan, who is a student at Community College of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh, PA. (Go, Steelers!)
Congratulations also to the winners of VCRA's first ever speed and realtime contests. Tori Pittman took the speed contest, 99.14% accuracy at 280 wpm! And Gwenda Applegate was the realtime contest winner!
A special thank you also to Debbie Dibble, NCRA's president, who helped swear in our 2022-2023 Board of Directors and gave a fantastic motivational presentation. We love you, Debbie!
