Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) is proud to announce that Jonesboro High School’s (JHS) Mock Trial Team is headed to the National Mock Trial Team competition as they have won the 2023 Georgia Mock Trial Championship! JHS earned the title on Saturday, March 18, in Lawrenceville, Georgia. This is the 12th state championship for Jonesboro High. 

The team won rounds versus Paideia, Woodland High School, and South Forsyth High School.  Jonesboro then won its semi-final round against Cambridge and the final round vs. Paideia, earning the title and a trip to the national tournament in Little Rock, Arkansas in May.

Nine individual awards went to Henry Rabideau, Anna Davis, Rasaq Olowoeshin, and Cameron Jones who excelled throughout the five rounds of very tough competition. Other members rounding out the championship squad were Hilda Zelaya, Melissa Vazquez-Guzman, Destinee Ponder, Kerrington Cutter, and Alonzo Williams. 

“I am delighted to offer congratulations to these students and adults for this outstanding accomplishment,” said Dr. Anthony W. Smith, CCPS Interim Superintendent of Schools. “I salute the teachers, our community partners and the team members’ families for their support of these students who, through dedication and purpose, have set a standard of excellence for others to emulate.” 

The Jonesboro Mock Trial Team is coached by Anna Cox, Andrew Cox, John Carbo, and Taylah Cash.
