Upper school girls receive accolades and recognition at this year's Model United Nations conference in Murfreesboro, TN.
Upper school girls traveled to Murfreesboro this weekend to participate in the Model United Nations conference. At the conference, Tennessee high school students learn about the real-world operation of the United Nations by participating in a reenactment of the organization's activities. Most students form delegations and represent member countries' interests in the General Assembly by drafting and debating resolutions. These resolutions cover a wide variety of topics of international concern. Other students have the opportunity to represent their countries on the Security Council, and to participate in a model International Court of Justice. The Hutchison Model UN team represented 2 International Court of Justice Lawyer Teams; 2 Delegations representing Angola and Cape Verde; and 2 Security Council Positions representing Spain and Malaysia.
Caroline Couch '20 and Anne Grinder '19 received two outstanding delegate awards, and Meredith Magness '18 was elected as a Vice President for next year. Congratulations!
