Upper School Students Participate in Model United Nations Conference
Earlier this month, Tower Hill sent a delegation of students to Princeton’s Model United Nations Conference. Students tackled a variety of historical and contemporary issues, from preventing human rights abuses in prisons, to determining whether the Saudi-led sanctions of Qatar constituted legal international action. Simi Olurin '19 earned Model United Nation’s highest honor, Best Delegate, for her thorough preparation and exceptional public speaking in the International Criminal Court. Rajiv Shah '19 and Joe Pinto '19 received an honorable mention for their representation of Congo in the ECOFIN committee. Barron Jones '20 also earned an honorable mention as a member of a joint crisis committee on Japanese imperialism. We’re very proud of all students for their energy and engagement during this challenging conference!
