The Court to CART Grant is offered through the National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) in memory of Rich Germosen's, FAPR, RDR, CRR, late stepfather and lifelong role model Eligio Antonio Rosario, Sr. The $1,000 annual grant will be awarded to an NCRA applicant interested in broadening his or her skill set from the judicial setting to the path of providing communication access realtime translation (CART) for people with hearing loss or for nonnative English speakers. The grant winner will receive an assessment of his or her realtime skills and instruction about current CART technology. Hands-on training will be provided as well as the chance to learn from applicable existing NCRA videos.
The concept behind this grant emanated from Germosen's quest for speed, accuracy, and professional development. His focus was complemented by Patricia Graves' passion to serve people with hearing loss or nonnative English speakers by providing CART services when needed.
My brother Richard, who was deaf, was my inspiration to serve people with hearing loss. I witnessed firsthand the isolation that happens when two-way verbal communication is impaired or stopped. I moved from serving people in the throes of legal issues to providing people with communication access in all facets of their lives.Pat Graves, FAPR, RDR, CRR, CRC
