pleased to announce 
that Julia Pevsner is the 
recipient of our 2023 
SMRFA Scholarship 
Award. This award recognizes 
one student in 
either their senior year 
of high school or first 
year of college who has 
demonstrated academic 
excellence, service to 
the community, and a 
dedication to the work 
of the Sierra Madre Rose 
Float Association. Julia 
served as a SMRFA princess 
for the 2022 parade 
and worked decorating 
our float both prior to

 She is a 2023 graduate of Maranatha High School. In the fall, she will be studying Nursing 
at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. 

She has been a wonderful contributor to SMRFA and will be missed in the SMRFA shop.


St. Rita School’s Mock Trial team took a small break from their summer vacation to 
learn about the law!

On June 12, 2023, the Mock Trial team observed criminal court proceedings at the Alhambra

Courthouse. Students sat in the jury box and learned the procedures of court cases, as well 
as more about the role of the Judge, Attorney and Jury. This is an experience they will never 
forget and our students are looking forward to applying these skills once the school year 

Mock Trial is a competition in which students simulate a real trial. This involves analyzing

evidence and using it to build an argument, public speaking, developing useful knowledge 
about the law, and critical thinking.

The Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF) of Los Angeles is the sponsor of the upcoming

2023-2024 school year mock trial competition, which had over 50 schools last year in the 
middle school competition.

Mock Trial is offered to St. Rita students in grades 6th-8th and is moderated by Daniel 
Lopez, a retired Judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. The Mock Trial team is 
scheduled to compete in October/November 2023 against other middle schools in presenting 
the prosecution and the defense involving a felony criminal case.
