The GISSV Model United Nations Club attended the annual Santa Clara Valley Model United Nations Conference.
Report by Sarah Kuehberger, GISSV Model United Nations ClubOn January 27 and 28, 16 students from the GISSV Model United Nations Club attended the annual Santa Clara Valley Model United Nations Conference, also known as SCVMUN, along with hundreds of other High School students from around the Bay Area. The students spent months preparing to tackle problems we find in our society today such as drones in armed conflicts and peacekeeping, anti-LGBTQ violence, neglected tropical diseases and bioethics and genome editing legislation.
We'd like to announce that even two of our first years, Emilia Rossmann and Julian Bouchard, got a verbal commendation for their outstanding performance during committee sessions. The team hopes to continuously strengthen their debate and speech skills, so please support their upcoming fundraisers throughout this semester.
Lastly, we would like to thank our two advisors who have worked tirelessly and even on weekends to support our club, Mrs. Heidi Schirmer and Mrs. Megan Schneberg. We couldn't have done it without your help, thank you.
