BGHS Model UN goes to Harvard


Six Bowling Green High School Model UN students last month participated in a four-day conference held by Harvard University called HMUN, which stands for Harvard Model UN.

Harvard Model United Nations is a four-day international relations simulation for high school students held annually in downtown Boston. At HMUN, delegates gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of world leaders and international decision makers.

This year’s conference hosted 3758 students from over 60 countries.

BGHS student Lucille Nomaguchi-Long won a Diplomatic Commendation award. She represented the country of Iraq in the Futuristic General Assembly, whose topic was Preparing for the Next Pandemic.

Each school had to apply and be accepted in order to attend.

Each student researched their topic and wrote a position paper on their topic. The BGHS delegation represented Iraq.

Ashley Knowltonn, club president, was on the World Conference on Women committee, with the topic of Representation of Women in Government.

Lucille Nomaguchi-Long, club vice president, was on the Futuristic General Assembly committee, with the topic Preparing for the Next Pandemic.
