Inspiring Global Citizens

Thinking globally is something we encourage our girls to do throughout their educational journeys. In middle school, thinking globally translates to the annual Model United Nations, a citywide event where students engage in civil discourse and open discussion of international issues through role play.
We know it is possible for young girls to make a difference on the global stage. Just this year, Time Magazine named 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg its 2019 Person of the Year. We think it’s never too early to start thinking globally.

At the annual Model United Nations this year, our entire seventh grade, plus 25 eighth graders, represented 23 countries, tackling issues ranging from environmental threats in China to strengthening building codes in the Bahamas.
 
Of the 20 resolutions that advanced to the General Assembly, seven were proposed by Hutchison students. Hira Janjua, Ayrah Kashmiri, Shifa Qureshi, Ayden Allen, Ellye Carpenter, and Olivia Evans were recognized for Outstanding Resolutions.
 
The following students were named Outstanding Delegates:
  • Adela Calzada
  • Jordan Deupree
  • Annabelle Gary
