SJS Model United Nations Team Commended at TDMUN VI Event

Last week a group of 33 students of our Model United Nations chapter competed with students from neighboring schools in the first ever Independent League of Model United Nations of Puerto Rico, TDMUN VI, hosted by The TASIS School in Dorado. This was a virtual event. We had three students chairing, Sofía Corral (’23), Diego Saavedra (’21), and Carlos Unanue (’21), all of whom were commended for their excellent job as chairs. Our SJS MUN club president, José A. Rodríguez, was the MC during the waiting time for awards. We are very proud of all our competitors, who represented our school with poise.
