MUN tackles St. Louis, prepares for Chicago

Misty Grady

     Late Saturday night, the Model United Nations team returned from the Midwest Model United Nations conference in St. Louis. The delegation was too tired then to reflect on the last four days, but they did not come home empty-handed.
     Delegates from every committee in the conference managed to pass resolutions, with the delegates in the International Atomic Energy Agency passing two by consensus, meaning no delegation voted against their resolutions. In addition to that, the head delegate, Dylan Ward, Catoosa sophomore, won an honorable mention for his performance in the Security Council as Austria. However, the true honor was that a part of the NSU delegation, those representing Austria, got to meet Dr. Reicken, Ambassador and Deputy Head of the Austrian mission to the United States at the opening ceremony of MMUN.
     “I am proud of the group, we worked hard, we put in all the effort possible, it was the best conference we’ve been to as of yet,” said Ward. “I definitely think there are big things ahead for this delegation and we’re going to use what we’ve learned in St. Louis when we go to the conference in Chicago next semester.”
