The Booker T. Washington Model UN Team had a successful weekend at the Arkansas Model UN. The event was attended by 450 students from more than 27 schools, some from as far away as Florida. Booker T. Washington took 12 students and was the only delegation from Oklahoma.
Booker T. Washington students received seven noteworthy citations including Aaron Hockett who was voted rapporteur by his fellow delegates. The rapporteur reports on the doings of a committee to the plenary session. Aaron Hockett and Tyrance Billingsley received two of the eight outstanding delegates citations awarded. Millie Milburn and Grant Bumgarner received citations for honorable delegate. Booker T. Washington received team awards for best delegation: Syria and El Savador. Only ten such awards were given out, and we received two of the ten.
Team sponsor John Waldron also received a citation for attending the tournament for the fifth time.
Several of the students on the team, including Walker Miracle, Arel Rende, Jack Schaeffer and Amy Cairns as well as some of the award winners are also members of the Booker T. Washington Speech and Debate program.
