This Week's Whiz Kids Earn Trip to D.C.

Victoria Hughes & Doonya Mereby are fifth-graders at State Bridge Crossing.

Wednesday's Whiz Kids: Victoria Hughes and Doonya Mereby

Grade: 5th

School: 

Accomplishments: Victoria and Doonya received an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. through their hard work and dedication in the Legal Lives Program, where students learned about the legal system, courtroom procedures, and influential people currently in office. The program is run by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office, where an attorney came to teach the class once a week.  Doonya and Victoria impressed their teacher each week with their initiative and dedication in preparing for class. Both girls competed in a Mock Trial Competition where they won awards in their categories.  Victoria and Doonya were recognized as stars of the program and will go to Washington D.C. in June.
