After School Enrichment


Model UN

Clarksville Academy was well represented with 37 delegates at this year’s Model United Nations Annual Conference held in Murfreesboro on November 3-5. With 1,000 students from all over Tennessee in attendance, this conference was the biggest yet. The countries of Brunei Darussalam [Will Mabry, Macy Truitt, Georgia Smith and Daniel Loos] and Latvia [Maggie Clark, Cheyenne Deibert, Brennen Morrow and Ben Truex]  had their resolutions ranked favorably enough in Committee on Friday to make it on Saturday’s docket in the General Assembly. Brunei’s resolution 17-7-4 was for the Colonization of the Earth’s Moon and Latvia’s resolution 17-2-3 was A Resolution to Encourage Discussion Regarding State Use of Information and Communication Technologies. Both of these resolutions came up for debate and Latvia’s resolution was passed by the Red General Assembly. At Sunday’s award ceremony Cheyenne Deibert was recognized for receiving an Outstanding Delegate Award and the Dominica team of Rosie Robinson, TJ Jenkins, Jason Herlick and Hunter Kueter received an Outstanding Resolution Award for their resolution 17-4-19 which was A Resolution to Improve Education in Developing World Countries.
