The Grayson County Y-Club was named a Delegation of Excellence at the annual Kentucky United Nations Assembly (KUNA) held recently in Louisville.
The three-day event allows students to participate directly in simulated international diplomacy and experience the richness of cultures worldwide, with emphasis on a variety of perspectives and global issues.
To prepare for the experience, students dive deeply into the culture of a nation they select and are encouraged to re-examine the world from a new perspective. They also develop solutions for international issues by writing, presenting, debating, and voting on UN Resolutions.
Representing Panama, Grayson County’s resolution, encouraging more accessibility for people with disabilities, passed their summit. Resolution authors were Isaac Jarboe, Lincoln Nichols, and Cameron Harris. Harris was also received an Outstanding Ambassador award.
Other participants earning recognition were Baleigh Murrain, who ran as a candidate for Secretary General, Olivia Lucas was selected to work with the KUNA Media Corps, and Kaitlin Horn served as a delegate. GCHS also received honorable mention for its country sign.
