MUN Delegates Represent Bhutan and Haiti

Recently, 19 Cushing students traveled to Boston to participate in a weekend of Model United Nations events. Delegates in the MIT conference represented the country of Bhutan, while those at the Boston University event represented Haiti. While most students were new to Cushing’s MUN club, they were all serious about preparing their positions on such issues as peacekeeping operations, world disarmament, and consequences of foreign military bases. Said Ms. Catalina Reinoso, one of the club’s advisors, “This was an incredible learning opportunity for our students. It was great to see them make alliances with other countries, step outside their comfort zone, and think about the world, and not just their world.”
 
An extra congratulations to Zitong Tony Zheng ’18 who won the award for best position paper in his committee, the UN Security Council.
