Model UN Earns Four Awards in Rigorous Competition
Seven Hills’ Model UNclub claimed four awards during the Indiana University Model UN Conference in late February. Adviser and history department chair Brian Wabler took 21 students, who participated in debate and negotiation about topics as diverse as the rights of different countries in space, the potential placement of a new Amazon headquarters, and disaster relief.

- Grant Veldhuis representing Argentina in the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization received an Outstanding Delegate
- Jenny Hu representing Azerbaijan in the Arab League received a Best Delegate
