What a week! Maybe you've noticed that your children wish to raise a point of personal privilege at dinner, or are voting to bring motions to the floor in the middle of the afternoon, or maybe they now insist on wearing business-casual from here on out. Either way, they distinguished themselves this week at MAMUN.
Going up against juniors and seniors, many of whom take Model UN as a class, our students debated, authored resolutions, brokered deals, participated in international crisis management, and stopped the US from completely dominating the UN Security Council. I was impressed, and proud.
Our delegates exhibited maturity and accountability as well, checking in with me and the parent chaperones at appropriate times and reporting their whereabouts when necessary. They are to be commended for this as well.
Special recognition goes out to Shehryar, John, Chloe, Veronica, and the entire Pakistan team. The first four received Second or Highest Honors in their committees, and three of them were part of twenty students in total (out of 410!) invited to a special crisis simulation on Friday night. The country of Pakistan received second honors in the General Assembly, and also received an award for that. This is unprecedented for a MUN program in only its' second year. I don't have enough words to express how surprised and delighted I am at these results.
