Executive Board


FSU Mock Trial is a student-run and student-coached organization. Our lovely Board of Executives (E-Board) is made up of our dedicated and fearless leaders. Together, they oversee the administrative matters involving our program. It's their duty to keep our program running smoothly all year long. We're so excited to introduce our 2020-2021 Executive Board!

 

President | Fernando Yzquierdo

Year: Junior

Major: Criminology and Creative Writing

Hometown: Miami, FL

About:  My one brain cell has survived an upbringing in a Cuban household, four head injuries, and seven years of mock trial. I don't know why they elected me president, but needless to say, I've made it farther than expected.

 


 

External Vice President | Gabrielle Little

Year: Junior

Major: Philosophy and Art History

Hometown: Melbourne, FL

About: Color-coding enthusiast. Walks too fast for automatic doors. Not allowed within 500 feet of Paul Rudd.


 

Treasurer | Olivia VanBennekom

Year: Senior

Major: Finance

Hometown: Jacksonville, FL

About:  My only hobbies outside of mock trial are singing Taylor Swift songs, talking about dogs, and buying monogrammed things. I'm technically a Lady in Scotland (long story) and you can address me as such. 


 

Internal Vice President | Madeleine Bodiford

Year: Junior

Major: Political Science and Psychology

Hometown: Tallahassee, FL

About: Console gamer. To this day, I still don't know what mock trial is. The only thing I know for certain is that the Commonwealth of Vermont has prohibited me from entering their state.


 

Tournament Director | Abigail Branham

Year: Sophomore

Major: International Affairs

Hometown: Lakeland, FL

About: Pretty much the only thing you need to know about me is that I've been able to quote the Law & Order Special Victims Unit intro since seventh grade.


 

Tournament Director | Jordan Singer

Year: Sophomore

Major: Criminology

Hometown: Miami, FL

About:  I bring the chaotic soccer mom energy that everyone needs but no one ever asked for. I'm the CEO of cannolis, caffeinated beverages, and crying. If more than five minutes go by and I have not mentioned my love for Jewish cuisine, something is wrong and authorities should be contacted immediately.


 

Tournament Director | Emily Hinton

Year: Sophomore

Major: Criminology

Hometown: Tallahassee, FL

About: I'm primarily known for my RBF, occasional blank stare, and ability to balance on a rolling log. I sold my soul to FSU Mock Trial a year ago, and so far it's going well. I'm also the only Executive Board member with combat ability.


Leadership Board


FSU Mock Trial's Leadership Board (L-Board) is tasked with assisting the President and other senior officers with the operation of FSU Mock Trial. The L-Board is comprised of hardworking and dedicated Mockers. The coordinator positions are hand selected by the Executive Board.
