Nobles Represents at Model UN



Faculty members Amadou Seck and Sheila McElwee took 20 students to the Hilton Model UN conference Feb. 16-19. The event was held at the Hilton Washington, D.C, and organized by Georgetown University. Nobles students represented several countries, including Barbados, Kazakhstan, Antigua and Singapore. They also had a representative in the British House of Common. Each student participated in six committee sessions, defending their countries on specific issues, like voting, creating and passing resolutions, making alliances and solving diplomatic and sometimes military crises.

Julianna Wright '12 and Susruthi Rajanala '13 were selected to participate in a midnight crisis from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Susruthi's committee dealt with the "killing" of CNN's Anderson Cooper, whereas Julianna's committee dealt with war between between Singapore and Malaysia.

Our students were very engaged and perspicacious. On Friday morning, the entire Nobles group went to visit the MLK memorial and various museums in D.C.

The trip was a great success, and the kids can't wait for another one!
