Eight Pace Academy Upper School students and faculty advisors Helen Smith and Keith Newman traveled to Budapest, Hungary, from Nov. 23 to Dec. 3 to participate in Yale Model Government Europe. The trip was part of the Pace Academy Policy Simulation program.
Following four days of meetings, deliberation and crisis, the Pace delegation received the Outstanding Delegation Award. The school was one of three delegations recognized for overall excellence. Smith credits the delegation’s success to "each student's strong presence, diplomatic skills and quick thinking."
More than 35 schools and 350 delegates from around the world participated in the Model, and Pace students Jeri Brand, Rebecca Husk, Maryellen Malone, Rachel Much, Harrison Halberg, James O'Brien, Nathan Sokolic and Bobby Stonecipher helped shape and guide the decisions made by European Union country cabinets and the Councils of Ministers.
The following Pace students received individual recognition: Much, Honorable Mention as the Hungarian Minister of Health; Halberg, Honorable Mention as Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs; O'Brien, Outstanding Delegate as the EU Affairs Minister from Belgium; Brand, Best Delegate as the Economic and Financial Affairs Minister from Greece; Husk, Best Delegate as the German Cabinet's Minister of Defense.
"We congratulate each of the eight students for unique contributions to Pace's awards," says Smith. "We appreciate their research skills, written position papers and knowledge of current events, all of which combined to form a strong policy simulation team."
