LCA’s Junior Model United Nations team brought home many honors from a competition sponsored by the Cleveland Council of World Affairs at John Carroll University last week. They competed against 275 middle school students from area schools.
Of the 13 LCA participants, five received honorable mention awards: Elizabeth Halko, Kelly Korpowski, Tristan Rumsey, Jack Viglianco, and Gwen Wojtkun. Michael Donnelly received the Golden Gavel award as his committee’s most outstanding delegate.
Junior Model United Nations provides an opportunity for middle school students to debate and discuss international issues of the day and learn more about complex global dilemmas. LCA students represented Australia, Jordan, and Russia after researching and preparing for this event.
We are very proud of our students’ accomplishments and all of their hard work!
