MHS Students at MIT Model UN Conference

Social Studies Department Chair Bryan Corrigan posted the following about a great group of MHS students:
"The Melrose High School Model U.N. club took part in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s 3-day Model United Nations conference recently.  MHS students participated in delegations representing multiple countries, including France and Australia.  Two Melrose High School students, Rachel Freed and Addison Dowell, were commended for their outstanding work on their respective committees.  Advisor Kevin Tierney, a 6th grade geography teacher at MVMMS expressed his delight with the team’s effort: “I am so proud of the students.  It is encouraging to see them so engaged in an activity with such real academic and personal value.”  Mr. Tierney notes that students displayed their skills in public speaking, negotiation, compromise, and persuasion."
