On February 15th, nine Emerson students took part in MSU’s Red Cedar Model United Nations for state middle schools. Students represented countries such as France, Turkey, and Côte d’Ivoire in general assemblies as well as individuals and organizations for crisis simulations like CDC Outbreak, WWII, Education, and the Constitutional Convention. The students enjoyed their day at MSU with middle schools from all over the state.

Two Emerson students were recognized for their outstanding efforts: 

  • Henry Branch:  Outstanding Delegate (the top award) for his portrayal of Ernest King in a WWII Ad-Hoc committee
  • Austin Zeglis:  Verbal Award for his representation of Turkey in the UNEP assembly

Emerson students also brought home some just-for-fun awards:

  • Casey Lewis: Best Personality
  • Austin Zeglis: Best Dressed

Congratulations to all of the Emerson student delegates!
