Taking its name from the Latin word for voice, VOX Knights brings together students of all grade levels who use their voice in various interscholastic competitions, including NSDA, NJSDA, PGFC, Mock Trial, and ITS. Together, these students have committed themselves to the club’s mission to “dicere veritas et iustitia”, which in Latin means, “speak truth and justice.” (MCS)
