Great Lakes Campus Donates Veterans’ Oral Histories to Library of Congress


10/05/11

In observance of Veteran’s Day, on Friday, November 11, Prince Institute—Great Lakes Campus will bring area court reporters to the Schaumburg campus in order to preserve the life stories of veterans. All transcripts will be donated to the Library of Congress.
 
“Prince Institute wanted to partner with court reporters in our area to honor America’s wartime veterans, who have sacrificed so much for our freedom,” said Dave Wynne, Senior Vice President, Sales & Education. “Coordinating this effort to apply court reporting skills to preserve these accounts will serve as our contribution and our thanks to these heroes.”
 
Court reporting students can also participate in the National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) program to receive free student membership if they transcribe two histories under the Oral Histories Program. Student membership includes a wealth of resources, including articles and information, a special student newsletter, networking, mentoring, job and career counseling, and online job referrals.
 
If you know a veteran with a story that should be saved for the future or are a court reporter who would like to volunteer to participate, please contact Prince Institute at (847) 592-6600 before October 11 so an interview can be coordinated.
