Madison Central Mock Trial Team

Melody has enjoyed being a member of the Madison Central High School mock trial team the past two years. She is fortunate to have worked as one of the team's lead attorneys in the competitions.

Over the years I have seen many great programs for the high school students, but none compare to this outstanding one. The program is a valuable tool that teaches the students how our judicial system works, provides them the opportunity to enhance their public speaking skills, builds their self confidence, and teaches them to think and understand both sides of an issue.

In yesterday's first match, Melody was a defense attorney in a case held in the Manchester Circuit Courtroom. She and her team won the case in outstanding fashion. Later in the day she was a prosecutor for the same case against a different mock trial team. Melody and the Madison Central team also won that match and advance another step toward their goal of achieving an undefeated season and winning the Kentucky state championship.
