The SHS Model Congress/Model United Nations club, led by adviser Mr. Matthew Haggerty, recently competed at Harvard University. Last week, Feb. 22 – 25, 19 students hit the road and headed north to Boston, Massachusetts for the 39th annual Harvard Model Congress conference.

President Caroline Byra, 11; Senior Vice President, Kagan Howell, 12, Junior Vice President, Peter Lyba, 11, Secretary, Wyatt Christian, 12, and Treasurer, Kona Marapot, 11, are all returning members to the club and as officers, had the chance to serve as chairs on various committees during the conference.

Kona Maronpot,11, won Honorable Mention for Best Delegate in the World Bank Committee.  Dylan Hall,10, won Honorable Mention for Best Delegate in The United States House of Representatives Armed Services Committee.

Thousands of students travel across the country to participate in this conference for a chance to debate public policy.

Jessie Smith, 10, was one of only eight sophomores who joined this conference. Smith explained his role in the House Judiciary, ” I had to take on the role of Sheila Jackson, representative of Texas, on police reform and drug trafficking.  I had to present Jackson’s views alongside other representatives and debate those issues.”

Bentzoni said, “Students produced bills in their committees and proposed solutions to domestic and world problems.”

Before departing, students took a walking tour of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Campus.
