FORMER U.S. AMBASSADOR DELIVERS KEYNOTE FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL MODEL UN CONFERENCE
November 5, 2016
CBA’s Model UN program held its annual Middle School Model United Nations Conference on Friday, Nov. 4 in the Henderson Theater.
The Middle School Model UN Conference enables younger students to participate and experience firsthand what a high school-level Model United Nations event is really like. Many students are participating for the first time, and the importance of collaboration, empathy, and global issues is reinforced. Additionally, the majority of the Conference is run by high school Model UN members under the direction of faculty moderator and Director of Student Life Maureen Szablewski.
A full day event from 1:30pm to 8:30pm, the Middle School Model UN Conference provided our Academy men the the chance to demonstrate their leadership and provide a positive model for our younger attendees.
Thank you to all who made this event a great success!
