Webb Middle School Teams Make Strong Showing at Model UN Conference

Webb School of Knoxville was well represented at this year’s Middle School Model United Nations (UN) Conference in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, with seven Spartan teams competing and two advancing to final General Assembly. In addition, two Webb team members earned Outstanding Delegate distinction.

Hosted by the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, Middle School Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations, where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real-world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned countries.

Representing the Democratic Republic of the Congo at the conference, Webb eighth graders Valerie Morrison and Brooke Squires put forth a resolution to end sexual abuse in their assigned country.

Myanmar delegates Reagan Loveday, Jack Quigley, Malvika Singh, and Ben Vickers – all Spartan eighth graders – tackled a resolution to revert Myanmar back to a democratic republic.

Seventh graders Sam Kowalski, Aalim Rahman, Kaiser Ramjee, and William Spiller represented Panama, and extended a resolution to reverse deforestation in Panama while cleaning up the Panama Canal.

Eighth grade delegates Sophie Belmont, Calysta Garmer, Jazzlyn Garmer, and Evelyn Peterson represented Australia. Their resolution was to reduce the use of fossil fuels in that country.

Bangladesh delegates Eleanor Bookstaff and Elizabeth Jesse – both seventh graders – entered a resolution to reduce pollution in Bangladesh by introducing clean energy.

Representing Columbia, eighth graders Eli Carroll, Drew Eckerman, Kaden Houser, and Kunal Pradhan presented their resolution to eliminate the production of cocaine in their designated country.

Seventh graders Millie Braude, Caroline Goins, and Caroline Wanamaker, and eighth grader Rachael Feinbaum represented the Republic of Congo. The delegates put forth a resolution to provide aid and support to victims of sexual assault in their assigned country.

Webb’s Myanmar and Panama teams were among the 24 (out of 107 school teams at the conference) to advance to final General Assembly, where the Myanmar delegates’ resolution was passed by a vote of 32-12. In addition, Jack Quigley and Evelyn Peterson were among the 24 students – out of 300-plus participating delegates – to receive Outstanding Delegate praise.
