Congratulations are in order for LCHS KUNA Delegation!

The Kentucky United Nations Assembly is a mock United Nations run completely by students across Kentucky and sponsored by the YMCA. Students research, write, present, defend and vote on resolutions related to their selected countries, in our case, China. The students also created a cultural display for China that was displayed at the World Expo.

The Logan County High School KUNA Delegation was designated as a KUNA Premier Delegation, which signified our thoughtful engagement into the KUNA process and representation of the KUNA core values.

Due to the size of our delegation, we could only submit one resolution. It deals with food and water security throughout the world. The students' resolution passed almost unanimously, having only one "nay" vote against it. It was also endorsed by the Secretary General, meaning she saw fit that it was well researched, defended, and met the global needs of many nations. Not many resolutions received this endorsement.

The sponsors for the resolution were seniors Bella Gaddis, Kennedy Hadden, and Aidan Hughes. Matthew Taylor was selected to serve on the KUNA Security Council where he created and defended a resolution surrounding global security issues for the country of Mozambique. The Security Council discussed and provided solutions for global conflicts during the three days of the conference.

On an individual basis, Matthew Taylor was awarded an Outstanding Delegate Award. Matthew was selected due to his flexibility and ability to adapt during the Security Council process.

Fellow advisor Carson Zibart and I cannot speak highly enough about this group of kids, and their representation of themselves and Logan County High School.
