HADLEY-LUZERNE CLAIMS TWO HIGHEST HONORS AT 17TH NCMOAS
The North Country Model Organization of American States is a class taught in several school districts stretching from Granville in the east to Thousand Islands in the west. It is a college credit bearing class that students also earn NYS Participation in Government credit. Students are asked to represent nations across the western hemisphere from the perspective of the people of those nations regarding several agenda topics spanning from social issues, to political issues to environmental issues. This year Hadley-Luzerne had enough students to represent two nations – Canada and Panama. Their advisors, Mr. Jay Connelly and Mr. Wayne Strong, prepared the students with public speaking exercises, creative/critical thinking, political thought, marketing and even trips to Costa Rica and Mexico. This allowed students to perform with a high level of authenticity. At the culminating event at SUNY Plattsburgh, before a room of their peers, Hadley-Luzerne swept the two highest awards for Diplomacy for the second year in a row – Canada was awarded Most Diplomatic; Panama was awarded the Runner-Up. The 1st Committee award also went to Canada. Congratulations are in order to all who participated.
