SEGUIN, Texas – Court Clerk Reyna Hill has completed all of the requirements for Level II of the Municipal Court Certification Program and was recently awarded the certification by the Texas Court Clerks Association (TCCA) in conjunction with the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center (TMCEC), the Texas Municipal Courts Association (TMCA), and Texas State University – San Marcos. Hill has served in the Seguin Municipal Court since February 18, 2013.

“Receiving my Level II Certification is one of my greater accomplishments. I attribute this achievement to working with a wonderful group of women, an amazing supervisor and a great city. I feel very honored to be recognized alongside so many wonderful women and men, by so many brilliant associations,” said Hill.

To qualify for Level II certification, clerks must complete 40 hours of continuing education and pass a four-hour exam. Areas covered by the examination include legal research, ethics, fairness and diversity, processing cases, legal codes and statutes, records and caseflow management, financial management, bond forfeitures, domestic violence and computer literacy.

“The Level 2 test is difficult, Reyna studied and worked hard to prepare for this test. I am very proud of her dedication to this program and the Seguin Municipal Court,” said Landra Solanksy, Municipal Court Administrator.
