Wood & Randall, A Veritext Company, presents scholarship to court reporting student
Cassandra Horn LeFave, a court reporting student at Taft College at WESTEC has been awarded the Wood & Randall, A Veritext Company, $1000 Scholarship for 2021.
Earlier this summer, high speed students at WESTEC were invited to apply for the scholarship. Applicants were required to complete an application and write an essay. The essay needed to include personal history, career goals and financial need. Instructor recommendations were also required.
“Cassandra and her accomplishments really stood out,” said Christine Randall, CSR, RPR, and Principal with Wood & Randall. “Cassandra wrote about her decision to leave an unfulfilling career and to go back to school to become a court reporter. She wrote about her gratitude to have found a career that she can be passionate about, and that is obvious in her grades and performance.”
Christine also noted that Cassandra is highly regarded by her instructors. Her instructors describe her as having a great attitude with a willingness to work hard. She is also described as being generous and willing to help the other students.
“I applaud Cassandra’s success in the WESTEC program and was honored to award her with this scholarship,” said Christine. “I agree with her instructors that she truly is one in a million.”
