2013 Mock Trial Competition
On February 20, 2013, the Bend High Mock Trial club, coached by Lillian Quinn and assistant coach, Pat McHenry, joined students from around the state in a Mock Trial competition. While Mock Trial clubs are found in many local high schools, the Bend High Mock Trial club is only three-years-old. When Lillian Quinn’s daughter entered high school, and she became aware that the school lacked a Mock Trial club, she began to pave the way for this club. Bend High’s first Mock Trial club was birthed in 2010.
Now three years later, the club consists of thirty vibrant, young students with a zeal for teamwork and the law. This year the students tried State vs. Taylor Durden. The case centers on a college student, Durden, charged with second-degree manslaughter and hazing after a student accidentally dies during a pledge event. “The students did an amazing job,” said Lillian Quinn. “I am proud to be their coach.”
