SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Lynette Ricks, from the Office of the State Courts Administrator (OSCA), will speak at Evangel University on January 19 at 11 a.m.
The presentation will take place in Trask Hall 204.
Ricks will provide information about Missouri’s foreign language court interpreter program. Anyone interested in participating in the certification program may attend.
“In order for Missouri’s courts to provide qualified interpreters, OSCA conducts a court interpreter certification program. The need for certified interpreters in the state of Missouri increases daily,” Ricks said.
Fluency in Spanish is strongly encouraged in order to be successful in the certification program.
Dr. Eliezer Oyola, professor of Spanish at Evangel, is hosting the presentation.
