The MUS seventh and eighth grade YMCA Middle School Model UN participants struggle to contain their glee after having spent all day in both City Hall and County Commission chambers downtown. The boys represented their countries, the school, and themselves well.
Here's a shot of the participating schools and their advisers. Obviously, many hours of work went into preparing the numerous resolutions, and the students really had to think and speak quickly on their feet even while being quite prepared with significant info concerning their represented countries. It was an impressive sight witnessing the kids being able to respond convincingly in front of their colleagues.
Out of twelve Outstanding Delegates selected by the advisers, MUS came away with two: seventh-graders Stan Smythe (Somalia) and Jon Staffel (Cameroon). Faculty sponsor Mr. Whit Tenent pauses briefly with his minions before heading home after a long day, prepping for some deserved relaxation given our welcomed long weekend.
