A volume of legal expertise, a superfluity of research, a plethora of quick thinking and a heavy dose of acting played into Trumbull High School’s success at the recent National Mock Trial Competition in Madison, Wisconsin. For the first time ever, Connecticut, represented by Trumbull High, was the top-finishing state from the Northeast. Their 17th place national finish is the highest rank a Connecticut team has ever scored in Mock Trial. The students included Mark Ambrose, Gabby Buttress, Christian DeGenova, Dante Esposito, Ashley Hallstrom, Kathy Nickson, Ross Pellenberg, Anneliese Segarra and Molly Stewart.
Head coach, social studies teacher and former attorney, Eric August, is justifiably proud of his Trumbull students.
