Westminster Sends Large Delegation to Yale Model U.N.

Students in Westminster’s Model U.N. headed to New Haven Jan. 23 to participate in the 46th Yale Model U.N. conference. The 23 Martlets had spent weeks preparing. Their committees represented a broad range of issues, from the past to the present. The group lucked out with a number of assignments to smaller, specialized committees that allowed the experienced crew ample opportunities to participate.

In addition to the committee sessions, highlights of the weekend included Yale Day events, which allowed students to sample Yale academic and cultural life, and a group dinner at Prime16, a fancy burger spot in New Haven.

Many delegates put forth a great deal of effort in their committees and took leadership roles in dealing with their assigned topics. Two students distinguished themselves this year. Qifei Min ’22 in the Arab League earned outstanding delegate honors, and Daniel Pinckney ’20 in the CDC crisis committee earned best delegate honors.

“Once again, it was a rewarding and enriching experience for the Martlet MUNers,” said Betsy Heckman, the group’s advisor and head of the History Department.
