Model United Nations Members Jordan Diegel '24, Logan Tamas '25 Receive Book Awards

By Adam Harake '24

Model United Nations (MUN) is an authentic simulation of the United Nations that provides participants with the opportunity to represent various countries or organizations as delegates. Through debates and negotiations, they strive to address global issues and find solutions that benefit the international community while adhering to UN rules and procedures. Diplomacy, research, and parliamentary language are essential skills for MUN participants.

Recently, our Catholic Central Model United Nations team, under the leadership of CC history teacher Mr. Russ Facione, participated in a conference at Michigan State University, where we had the privilege of showcasing our abilities. We are proud to announce that two of our members, Jordan Diegel ‘24 and Logan Tamas ‘25, received Book Awards for their outstanding position papers. This event was a valuable experience for us and marks a significant milestone in the success of our team.

Looking forward, we aim to build on our success and participate in conferences at The University of Michigan Ann Arbor and in either New York or Washington D.C. We are grateful to Catholic Central for giving us the opportunity to establish this club and compete in MUN conferences. Our team and I remain thankful for the support and guidance provided to us throughout this journey, and we are excited to see what the future holds for us.

Model United Nations began at Catholic Central in fall of 2022. Model United Nations is an activity that simulates a United Nations general assembly. It consists of speeches, debates, unmoderated caucus, moderated caucuses, and voting. It has teams from different schools, assigns topics of discussion for each simulation, and assigns each team their own country. Each team will have to do research on their assigned countries' views on the topic and write short speeches and resolutions to the problems. The team must form block “alliances” with other countries to form one resolution that benefits everyone in that block. Learn more about our student organizations here
