MBF supports Mock Trial state champs

MBF President Fran Ford presented Hadley's Pioneer Valley Performing Arts High School Mock Trial Team with a check for $2,500, which they will use to support their participation in the national championships in Charlotte, N.C., in May.

Funding for the mock trial state champs constitutes a special grant, voted on annually by the MBF Trustees. When asked about the day's events, Ford said, "If the students from Pioneer Valley Performing Arts High School and their competition from Newton North High School are representative of the next generation of lawyers, rest assured that our profession will be in very good hands. They were awesome."
