I would like to take this opportunity to thank the scholarship program for the tuition assistance that was provided. I am very grateful to have been selected as a recipient. It was such a joy to learn from the breakout sessions, engage with seasoned Judiciary professionals and discuss best practices. One of the breakout sessions I really enjoyed attending was, “Eight Steps to Excellent Presentations” facilitated by Julie Linkins. The workshop presented such great ideas for the attendees to better learn how to work on and enhance their public speaking as well as impromptu speaking skills. The information and education I gained at the conference overall afforded me the opportunity to become a more valuable and knowledgeable asset to the Court. It was such a rewarding experience and also provided the forum to further build upon relationships with fellow clerks across the nation. I am thankful I was given the opportunity to participate at the conference.
