Competing against some of the top Model UN teams in Florida, most of which were from enormous public schools, our students spoke and engaged in diplomacy far more than any year previously and put their countries (Russia, Argentina, and Italy) in the center of the discussion several times.
Donahue Academy’s Model UN, in only its third year, earned three honorable mentions for position papers. This placed three of our students among the top 21 out of roughly 200 participating delegates. The students who earned an honorable mention were:
- Mary Fairchild – The Global Prison Crisis
- Catherine Graham – Responding to the Crisis in Haiti
- Matt Scheck – Global Regulation of CRISPR Technology
Coaches Mr. Jahnke, Mr. Fairchild and Mr. Graham were thoroughly impressed with the 19 Donahue delegates who amounted to nearly 25% of the school!
