Christina Thomas, Drums, a junior at Wyoming Seminary Upper School, recently received the Outstanding Attorney Award for first-year students at the annual Mock Trial Academy held at North Central College, Naperville, Ill. Thomas won the award in recognition of her achievements at the 10-day program, where high school students work with attorneys to learn how to conduct a trial and how to plan, draft and present opening and closing statements, direct examinations, cross examine witnesses and other skills needed in both prosecution and defense in court. Juniors Salvadore Diaz, Avoca, and Matthew Obeid, Pittston, also attended the academy. Seminary's Mock Trial Team has also been selected to take part in the sixth annual Empire Invitational Mock Trial Competition to be held in October in Brooklyn, N.Y. Participants, from left, are Obeid and Thomas. Second row: Diaz.
