Ten Owls attended the YMCA Model United Nations conference in Murfreesboro Nov. 4-7, along with their sponsor, Mrs. Jenny Pratt. Three juniors served as elected officers this year. Amar Kanakamedala and Parth Mishra were General Assembly liaisons, and Kyan Ramsay was General Assembly vice president. MUS students reflected 2% of all conference delegates but served in 11% of all officer positions! All three juniors were elected to serve again next year with Mishra and Ramsay serving as General Assembly vice presidents and Kanakamedala as General Assembly president.
Seven seniors made up two country delegations at the conference. Dex Jack, West Loden, and Garner Uhlhorn represented Madagascar and wrote an impressive resolution on anti-terrorist penguin training. Will Fraser, Jordan Infeld, Samuel Lim, and Vincent Ores represented France and presented “A Resolution to Mitigate Crimes Against Journalism.”
