Madelynn '23, a senior at The Paideia School participated in an intensive three week Robert Benham Law Camp run by Atlanta's Gate City Bar Association. During the camp, she won awards for Best Attorney Overall, Best Opening Statement, Best Attorney on Direct Examination, and Best Attorney on Cross Examination. The Gate City Bar was founded in 1948 by ten African-American lawyers to provide African-American lawyers with a professional association at a time when they had been excluded from the segregated bar associations in Atlanta and throughout the state.
Five varsity girl team members, Alessia Sacchi, Olivia Colby, Eva Jean Young, Camy Brown, and Sophie Goldman, and five varsity boy team members, Geoffrey Halpern, William Lowrance, Abraham Gonzalez, Kenji Wu, and Spencer Furman, were selected for the honor. Congratulations!
