State Rep. Dave Rutigliano (R-123) honored the Trumbull High School Mock Debate Team recently on their state championship victory.

“This is an incredibly talented and bright group of kids,” said Rutigliano.  “It was a real honor to sit down and talk about their experience.  They are a great example to our town and a true testament to hard work paying off.”

Rep. Rutigliano presented a citation from the Connecticut General Assembly acknowledging all of the hard work and great accomplishment of the championship team.

“It was really a great experience meeting with Representative Rutigliano and receiving the Citation from the State of Connecticut,” Mock Trial Advisor Eric August said. “The kids truly appreciate the gesture by the State of Connecticut and hope to do the state proud at Nationals in May.”
