BHS students take part in Model UN Spring Conference at CWRU
Congratulations to Maggie Lekan, Elizabeth Holup, Courtney Dixon and Sophie Dasko for earning honorable mentions in the Cleveland Council on World Affairs Model UN conference at Case Western Reserve University March 6 and 7.

Lekan and Holup won for their work on the UN development committee, and Dasko and Dixon won for their on the UN Security Council.

About 20 Bay High students participated in the conference after being part of a conference in December held at Lorain County Community College. At Model UN, local high school students represent countries in UN committees and discuss current global issues. Students research their assigned country and global issues, and then they debate some of the world’s most pressing international issues and conflicts by making motions, delivering speeches, and working collaboratively to write resolutions.
