Our Model United Nations club held its second annual conference at McLean, McMUNC, on Oct. 21 -22. Thirty-two area schools attended with over 600 students participating. The Secretariat was made up of Secretaries General Alex Brunner and Fatima Shahbaz, Chief of Staff Tashi Gyatso, Director of Crisis Camille Richter and Directors of Technology Siddarth Shankar and Sungmin Kang. All were extremely pleased with the conference and proud of the club’s hard work in putting it together.
The guest speaker was Glenn Kessler from The Washington Post, who is the “fact checker” for political statements—the person who Trump/Clinton referred to during a debate. Glenn evaluates their statements for truthfulness and awards 1-4 “Pinocchios” based on the veracity of the statement. He was a terrific speaker and the club greatly appreciated him speaking at the conference.
Congratulations to our Model UN for hosting another successful conference!
