Nine Fort Plain Jr./Sr High School students recently participated in a Model United Nations simulation at the Carey Institute for Global Good in Rensselearville. Students Nate Beam, Emma Karker, Sophia Rogers, Brady Fureno,Taylor Gifford, Michaela Stockwell, Jenna Reese, Emma Oldick and Tucker Jones represented the nations of Austria-Hungary, Portugal, Mexico and Russia. Fureno served as the president of the simulation. Our students represented the stance of each nation on global imperialism. They had to write resolutions that were proposed to the United Nations Security Council. The mock UN Security Council debated and voted on each resolution. Fort Plain presented a resolution on behalf of Austria-Hungary and it was approved!
