Harvard Model Congress

Knights at Harvard Model Congress

Between February 23rd and 26th, nine students traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to take part in the 27th Harvard Model Congress.  After preparing over the course of several months, our students competed with 1400 other students from schools from across the country and around the world.  Each student took on the role of a congressional representative, global leader, or other political figure in the four day competition.  After several "global crises," a mock presidential election, a scandal on the scale of Watergate (deemed the Sheraton Scandal and discovered by our own Jack Pape), the Congress came to a close.  For their leadership and effectiveness, both Jack Pape and Neils Domina  were recognized with awards of excellence in their respective committees.  Mount Michael represented itself well at the conference both in awards and in the actions of all of the participating students.
