More support arrives for Okkodo mock trial team

Posted: Apr 17, 2018 4:43 PM Updated:

The Okkodo High Mock Trial Team is surprised once again, this time with a $6,000 check from Core Tech International.

As reported, the championship team will be flying out to compete in Reno, Nevada using government air miles donated to them. This latest donation and other generous donations will pay for their travel expenses.

The win for the first-year team of juniors is a first for the Dededo High School. 

Former DOE Deputy Superintendent Aline Yamashita tells KUAM that "the first public school to win Mock Trial was Southern High in 1998. The Southern team also came in second in the nation".
