The “Legal Lives” team from D.H. Stanton won the coveted D.A.’s Cup — the top honor — at the annual Mock Trial competition held at the Fulton County Courthouse. In addition to the team’s overall win, four of the outstanding fifth graders won trophies for their individual participation in the trial. Three students from the team were selected for an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. this summer.
This was the culmination of weeks of hard work by DA coaches and D.H. Stanton’s counselor, Raye Dupree. This is the second time that D. H. Stanton has brought home the D.A.’s cup.
Congratulations to everyone on this exceptional honor!
