Oliver, Anson, Aidan, Seamus, Dante, Rowan, Ben Manus, Kelin, Piper Indira, Patrick, Jeren, Ben Mione and Maxwell. They participated in committees addressing and trying to solve problems ranging from Protecting Minorities and Immigrant Populations from Targeted Attacks and Xenophobia to Conflict and Food Security in Africa to Improving Access to Education for Women Globally to the Question of Yemen to an Alternative History of Ancient Rome. These 14 hearty souls braved a big snowstorm. Despite the fact that a number of committee sessions had to be cancelled which affected the flow of the committees, our students showed grace and flexibility. They were led by the intrepid Michael Henderson who stepped up when it became clear at the relatively last minute that, despite my best efforts, it was not possible for me to attend. I am very grateful to him for doing an incredible job and to each of our students who are always delightful co-travelers at these events but, from the reports I received, stepped up tremendously in my absence.
Congratulations to Dante and Rowan for doing their first Model United Conference!
