• Central High Mock Trial Team Earns Honorable Mention

Students at counsel tableCongratulations to the Grand Rapids Central High School Mock Trial team, which received an honorable mention in Regional Mock Trial Competition this weekend.  Coached by Yvette Bradley, Madelaine Lane, Scott Carvo, and Sarah Riley, the students conducted two trials – one as the prosecution and the other as the defense.  Students played the roles of the attorneys and the witnesses.

This was only the second year that Central High School fielded a mock trial team.  Last year’s team also received an Honorable Mention.  But, the coaches could take special satisfaction in the result this year because, as a result of schools scheduling issues, this year’s team had only one and a half months to prepare for the competition.  Most teams begin preparation in September.
