Model United Nations Team Earns Distinction at Tulane Conference
Six Upper School Model United Nations team delegates competed at Tulane University WAVEMUN Model UN Conference from Nov. 22 - 24. One hundred forty student delegates from Tennessee, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana competed in four different MUN simulations. The StM delegates were Andrew Gary, Lydia Greene, Sydni Wiltz, Chris Catinis, Bharat Solanky, and Andreas Poulis. The team competed in the UN Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) Committee and debated issues of nuclear disarmament.

Two StM delegates were recognized for their outstanding work. Senior Bharat Solanky was awarded the prestigious Gavel Award for Best Delegate. Andrew Gary received a commendation for his work on DISEC. This is the second consecutive year that both Solanky and Gary received honors at the Tulane event. 

StM’s MUN team consistently gives notable performances at these events. In the spring the team traveled to Boston College's Eagle MUN Conference where Solanky garnered an Outstanding Delegate Award for work on the UN World Food Program Committee. 

The team is coached by Upper School faculty member Mary Quinet. To read more about how students prepare for a MUN conference, read the article in the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of The Bell (on pages 36-37)
