Fifty-one students from McMichael Middle School represented nine countries Jan. 17-18 at the Region 7 Model United Nations Competition (Session 1) held at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Three students finished with first place medals in their categories. Maya Smith was first in Security Council, Benjamin Nicholas was first in United National High Commissioner for Refugees and Samuel Bentley was first in Collage.

Students researched a problem that has global impact, then wrote resolutions that contained potential UN responses. Students then took their resolutions and debated their ideas and research with others from across the region.

Other individual medalists for McMichael included, Whitley Howell, second in World Health Organization; Sinh Sinh An, third in World Health Organization and General Assembly Speaker; Charittee Meredith, third in United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; Mikayla Bentley, third in United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization; Alyssa Kwiatkowski, second in United Nations Industrial Development Organization; and Mariah Jenkins, third in United Nations Industrial Development Organization.

McMichael students representing the Ethiopian delegation received honorable mention in Maps.

During the Region 7 Model UN Session 3 competition Jan. 28-29 in Kilgore, four McMichael eighth-graders filled leadership roles: Addison Heath, Secretary General; Mikayla Bentley, Sergeant-at-arms; Whitley Howell, World Health Organization; and Benjamin Nicholas, co-chair United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.

On May, 20 McMichael students will travel to Dallas for the Global Elementary United Nationals Competition and compete against schools from the U.S. and outside the country.
