Lakeland Christian SchoolOne of the core values of LCS is the belief that we are partnering with parents in the Christian education of their children. We believe that mutual respect, communication and involvement by all partners is essential for success of our mission.LCS is a school. We believe that being a Christian school and being a top-flight academic institution should not be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we take the mandate of Colossians 3:23 that calls us to strive to be the best. We provide a variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities that enable students to identify and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities.
Congratulations to our Mock Trial team, which won the Circuit 10 Mock Trial Competition on Thursday, February 7th at the Bartow Courthouse.
What is Mock Trial? The Florida High School Mock Trial Competition is an academic competition in which a team of 6-8 students simulate the roles of both attorneys and witnesses in a fictional trial situation. This is the most hands-on, intensive learning simulation about the trial process available to high school students.
The Mock Trial Team competition was on Thursday at the Bartow Courthouse and the team faced George Jenkins Law Academy and Bartow Academy of Legal Studies to determine which school would represent Circuit 10 at the State Championship for Mock Trial Competition in March 2019.
The following students participated in this competition: Abby Branham, Ama Fosu, Annie Bolter, Trent Curtis, Keaton Walding, Jace Gravitt, Faith Nagy, Emily Branham, Lucy Bolter, Seth Martinez, Tag Hunt, Riley Rhoden, Carter Sawicki, Haley Caylor and Alina Peek.
Abby Branham is the “Top Attorney” in Florida and “Top 10” in the world for High School Mock Trial teams. And Keaton Walding is ranked #2 “Witness” in the world.
The team has been coached by the amazing Chasity Branham with assistance from Judge-elect Melissa Gravitt. If you haven’t seen these students in action, you’ll be amazed by their capability and poise under pressure.
For the sixth year in a row, this Mock Trial team will represent the 10th Circuit at the Florida State Championship March 14th -16th 2019 in Orlando. These students appreciate your support and LCS looks forward to seeing this amazing team in action again soon.
