Congratulations to Brittany Silva, CSR.  Brittany graduated in 2011 in three years instead of four from Northwood High School.  She enrolled immediately at South Coast College and qualified to go to the State licensing test at 19.  While awaiting test results, Brittany completed the 260 wpm skill level and passed the Certified Shorthand Reporter Examination (CSR) on her first attempt.

Brittany’s secret is that she writes everything out.  She said that even a beginning theory student could read her shorthand notes for the 260 wpm tests that she passed to receive her skill card at that level.  Her other secret is that she stayed at school for 16 hours a day either in class or practicing.  Hard work pays. off!!
