EL CENTRO – Most of the Central Union High School mock trial team was on campus Friday afternoon in their Sunday best as they accepted congratulations from Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, D-Coachella, for their performance in this year’s state finals.

CUHS finished seventh in the 40th annual California Mock Trial Finals, which were held virtually this year on March 18-21. The competition is sponsored by the Constitutional Rights Foundation, a non-profit, non-partisan, community-based organization that describes itself as “dedicated to educating America's young people about the importance of civic participation in a democratic society.”
