The latest news from the TEC campus

Hi and welcome to the Pirate TV announcements for the week of November 10th.

We are hearing reaction to the election outcome… Senior Edgar Reed-Sandoval says he is surprised and pretty angry that people supported Trump. He is one of many students and teachers around the TEC campus who stayed up late to watch election results. It was the wee hours when Republican Donald Trump was declared the winner of the Presidential race. TV news shows reported that Trump won states expected to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton. Reed-Sandoval worries that a Trump presidency may ruin the economy. Junior Anea Winfield hopes this election doesn’t fuel more conflict, She says, “There is too much conflict in our country and society that’s been building for over a century”.

Want an interesting question to debate? What would you do if you heard that a five-year-old child accidentally ate some marijuana edibles fell off a balcony and died. That is what this year’s Mock Trial case is all about. Prosecutors will be holding the company that sold the edibles responsible for the death. Defense attorneys will defend the company, saying the five-year old’s father should have been more responsible. Which side would you choose? The team is meeting every Wednesday from 3:35 – 4:15 in 3406. There is still a need for witnesses as well as attorneys. See Ms. Corn for more details or just show up on Wednesday, November 16.
