Shawn P. Yancy, coordinator of the YLS High School Mock Trial Competition, has elected to serve on the National High School Mock Trial board of directors. He will serve a three-year term and begin work on committees once determined by the chair.
Yancy had another successful year as coordinator of mock trial. He traveled with The Independent School, of Wichita, to North Carolina for the national championship, where the team placed 37th. During this year's state tournament, Yancy wrote the case and conducted a special training session for Kansas coaches to help prepare them for the competition. This year, 175 students and 80 volunteers participated in the Kansas competition.
