Accolades and Awards for Stratford
Blake Simmons - Best Defense Attorney - Blake was recognized as the best Defense Attorney out of 22 different schools!!! Blake has "lawyer written all over him" and is a force to be reckoned with!!!!
Antoinette Lavender received the Most Valuable Player for Stratford’s team. This accomplishment was excellent as it was the result of excellent team spirit!!! Antoinette received a gavel for her recognition.
All other team members worked equally as hard and were excellent! It took a lot of dedication, commitment, studying, remembering facts, and soul searching for our students. Each member held his/her own. Comparing them to other teams. SHS only had 6 participants. This means they had to learn so many different roles. They were all so prepared!
Special thanks to Ms. DeMica Robinson for encouraging the students and for allowing them exposure to this event. Also, she was a wonderful support system. We appreciate you picking up students, taking them to different places, getting appropriate clothing, etc. Thanks for working even during the snow days.
Additionally, special thanks goes to mentor and Attorney-Mrs. Courtney Teasley. Not only did she practice with students at Stratford, she opened her law office and allowed students to practice there. She donated over 100 manpower hours just to ensure the success of the Mock Trial Team.
