Ensworth’s Model United Nations High School club members attended the 19th annual Vanderbilt University Model UN conference in early November.
Bringing a delegation of 16 students from three grade levels and three separate committees, Ensworth students were well-prepared and well-engaged. Tyler Roh won the verbal commendation, Sutton Korn the honorable mention, and Mya Jones the best delegate award in the General Assembly. Sponsors David Chanaca and Cecilia Wang commend the students' attitude, dedication, and effort. The next stop for the Model UN is in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee in February.
Model UN is an educational simulation of the UN General Assembly. This experience allows students to build research, public speaking, debating, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills while expanding their knowledge of global affairs.
