Members of the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School Model UN group traveled to Harvard for the 20th year to attend the annual event.
continued Sophomore Wesley Whalen attended his second Harvard UN this year.
“There were a lot more people from different areas of the world this year,” Whalen said. “We did a lot more public speaking and talking about the topics we had prepared for.”
“I knew what to expect, and I was not overwhelmed — it was not as scary,” said sophomore Will Tompkins, who also attended his second conference. “It was interesting to hear the perspectives of the different countries.”
The student delegation also included junior Terry Thomas and junior Corinne White, who was the head delegate for her school.
“It’s cool to see how everyone has changed by the end, and they were all very confident,” White said. “We have been able to become a lot more involved in the process and work more inside the different committees.”
The students are preparing for their next Model UN, which will be held at Northeastern Clinton Central School in Champlain.
