THS Students Attend Model UN

  Students Attend Model United Nations at Gannon University


The 63rd  Model United Nations Conference took place November 13 - 14, 2015 at Gannon University in Erie, PA; drawing together approximately 500 students representing thirty high schools from Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio. The purpose of this conference is for schools to represent a country in a mock United Nations meeting. There were six issues that the delegation discussed and debated at this year’s conference. These issues ranged from combatting cyber warfare to the need for healthcare reform. Issues are chosen each year from those that the United Nations is currently addressing.

 

Student teams are responsible for researching a country and determining it’s viewpoints on the selected issues, as well as suggesting possible solutions for these issues. Also, each “country” must be well versed on its history, as well as the history and parliamentary procedures of the United Nations. The major challenge for student delegates is to balance the interests of their assigned country with the pursuit of United Nations goals that benefit the world, especially if they differ from a student’s personal experience.

THS represented Spain at this year’s Model UN Conference. The 2015 THS Model UN team delegates were Kelsee Dowling, Erik Hipple, Hannah Andrusky, Ally Rybczyk, Heaven Berry, Malissa Humanic, Patrick Fridley, Katheryn Frazier, Christina Borkovec, Britteny O’Brien, and Bonnette Steffy.

Model UN is open to THS sophomores, juniors, or seniors.  The advisor for the Model UN team is Mrs. Jones.

Op-ed by Amy Morton: PA Student Testing
Every spring Pennsylvania students in grades 3-8 take tests in language arts and math, and every fall the results of those exams are released to the public. In advance of the data being distributed this year, I wanted to explain the changes that took place prior to and since the last testing period so the public will have a clearer understanding of the performance of our schools.
