Students from four district high schools — including Beaufort High School — have been recognized for their performance at the Model United Nations Conference held at Georgia Southern University.
Model UN is an educational simulation where students learn about diplomacy and international relations by “representing” countries from around the world in mock diplomacy exercises. Students learn about current world issues, brush up on their speaking, debating and writing skills and also improve their critical thinking, teamwork and leadership abilities.
Students from Hilton Head Island High School, Bluffton High School, May River High School, and Beaufort High School were recognized for their work.
Beaufort High’s Avery Thomas earned Honorable Mention and Helene Marshall and Logan Shissias earned Distinguished Recognition.
Beaufort High’s faculty advisor is Jonathan Miller.
