Holcomb Bridge Middle School students Karla Chavez and Mason Gay made up the partnership that earned the highest award of Best Delegation at this year’s Global Classroom’s International Middle School Model UN Conference in New York City back in April. The two were amongst the 20 HBMS eighth-graders who participated in the conference.

Chavez and Gay were one out of 80 other competing partnerships in their committee, in which only 12 awards were given.

Assistant principal Matt Vance and teachers Brittany Durkin and Christa Heath attended the trip with the students. All 20 students worked the entire year to prepare for the trip and as a whole raised $18,000 to cover their expenses.

“I am very proud of these students and our educators who coached and accompanied them,” stated principal Joy Schroerlucke. “This is the sixth year that our school has participated in a Model UN. As a school of global classrooms, it is a perfect fit for us.”

HBMS was one of only three Georgia schools and the only public middle school to attend the conference. The school has received numerous distinctions, including the designation of Georgia National Lighthouse School to Watch.
