Rickover Takes 4th Place in City Mock Trial and has 1st Place Lawyer!

Rickover had our third and final round of the Mock Trial Competition on April 24, 2019.  Our individual finalist, Jennifer Calderon, did so well as a Prosecution Lawyer that she was awarded a week-long internship with a Circuit Court of Cook County Judge over the Summer!  She was given a special shout-out from the judges for her Closing Arguments.  Mischka Nelson was the Prosecution's Star Witness, and she performed admirably in her role!  We also learned on April 24, 2019 that Rickover's Mock Trial Team placed 4th overall in the competition, out of over 20 schools!  Our Mock Trial coach, Eric Smolen, extends his thanks, "to all of the teachers and staff who made time for the students to be able to prepare, and compete, in these wonderful events. Thank you very much!"  And the school would like to thank you Mr. Smolen!
