Congratulations to JMUN Students

Grant Students and Grant Alums Work Together to Solve International Issues

A huge congratulations to Grant’s middle school students who attended the forty-fourth annual San Diego Regional Junior Model United Nations conference.  44 middle schoolers virtually attended a two-day conference to discuss water insecurity, international shipping, safety for journalists, and other pressing international issues.  They represented Grant with both poise and enthusiasm. 

Many Grant students were acknowledged for their outstanding preparation and participation.  Matthew Quitoriano was awarded the highest honor possible – the Gavel –  in his committee, the World Health Organization.  Maxton Levine and Owen Lowe were each acknowledged as “Outstanding Delegates”.  In addition, Ben Case, Sierra Burton, Mia Turner, Abel Ducom, and Wyatt Spencer received commendations for their work

Grant students dominated the field in research and economic awards as well.  Ava Patri, Josh Padilla, Aiden Hughes, and Yonas Gizachew were acknowledged for their research on the environment, disarmament, UN peacekeeping operations, and protection of World Heritage Sites, respectively.  In addition, Myles Caldwell and Samuel Sharp received recognition for their outstanding application of economic principles in the area of disarmament and promoting entrepreneurship.

Lastly, Matthew Quitoriano was honored with the Pat Pierson Prize in Economics for his research and funding solutions for minimizing doctor/nurse shortages worldwide.  His work was selected out of hundreds of papers submitted conference-wide, and presented by the San Diego Center for Economic Education at Cuyamaca College.

We also want to honor Grant alumnae Caroline Renas (Point Loma High), Elea Castiglione, and Arsema Aklog (San Diego High) who returned as members of the Upper Secretariat to run the overall conference.

We are very proud of all of you.
