York County Court Staff Member Earns Prestigious Certification

A York County Court of Common Pleas administrator is among 22 recent graduates of a rigorous program aimed at improving the leadership and management of court systems.

Deputy Administrator Jennifer Reider became a Fellow of the Institute of Court Management after Jennifer Reidersuccessfully completing the Institute’s Fellows Program. The intensive four-phase program is the highest and most demanding program offered by the Institute of Court Management. It better prepares court professionals for management and leadership positions, according to the Institute.

Reider was among 22 professionals from around the country to participate in a graduation ceremony on May 8 at the U.S. Supreme Court.

“We’re extremely proud of Jen’s success in achieving this certification,” said York County Court of Common Pleas Judge Stephen P. Linebaugh. “Her accomplishment reflects well upon the Courts and the commitment of our staff to ensure the fair, expeditious and impartial administration of justice.”

More than 1,230 court professionals have graduated the Fellows program since its inception in 1970, according to the Institute. It is the only program of its kind in the United States, and was established in response to a call from former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Warren E. Burger for improved management of state court administration.

Reider was hired by the County in 2006 as the assistance chief deputy in the Clerk of Courts’ office and has steadily advanced in job responsibilities throughout her tenure.

“I thank the Courts for allowing me the opportunity to participate in this demanding program,” Reider said. “I look forward to sharing the skills and knowledge I’ve learned during this process to improve the York County Court of Common Pleas.”
