Yale Model Congress A Success For Many First Time BHS MCers
Many BHS MCers made their debut at YMC last weekend, and as expected, loved it! Although awards were not as plentiful as PMC two weeks earlier (see below News), BHS MCers were winners on many fronts and made Petela proud by their great efforts and enthusiasm. Many Yale chairs and executive board members complimented Petela on his delegates performance, class, and maturity. Sixty bhsmcers made their voices heard (and 22 frosh/soph shadows joined them and made their presence felt on Friday!) and gained valuable experience over a long weekend of informative and inspiring tours, competitive committee and full sessions, and some incredible, delicious meals at Bar restaurant and Mory's, cups and singing included -- It's AJ, it's AJ, it's AJ that makes the world go round... -- Good times! laughing

More than three quarters of bhsmers were first timers, but that did not scare them from being fully engaged in sessions. Jr BHS MC VP Maddy Coulter waged an aggressive, creative, and candy-filled, friendly campaign for YMC president, delivering a witty and solid speech, but came up short by a few votes. Nevertheless, she and Eric Nemarich represented BHS strongly in the high powered, select Presidential Cabinet, drafting policies and reviewing bills passed in full sessions. Congratulations to first time MCer junior Rachel Cassella for winning an honorable mention for her committee performance. All in all it was a great learning experience for BHS MC, an investment for future award winning delegates (see Chen Ding's Special Reflection in Alum/Reflect link above if you haven't yet, awards, she discovered, takes patience and perseverance, focus and grinding, and a lot of game faces). angry angry angry

Speaking of awards, we once again won the best looking and best dressed delegation, by far, however, our dancing at the congressional ball was not quite up to past conference performances, something we need to work on next time! laughing

Special thanks to George Miles for his legendary Beinecke and Sterling Library tour, Dean Loge at Timothy Dwight for his words of wisdom for thinking about college--its never too early, Taryn Mockus and Gus Peterson for putting in a full day of guiding the army of 72 bhsmers on Friday (our largest ever, and it felt it!), AJ Bishop for putting in a couple days of helping chaperoning, video taping sessions w/ Mockus on Friday night and Dominique Ruddy on Saturday & night. And of course a shout out to our man about town Mr Cintron for being our just in case big-bodyguard and food scavenger, never letting a plate go empty at dinners. tongue As for yours truly, I snapped over 2000 photos, visiting every committee and full sessions at least twice over the weekend, got some gems for sure... coming soon to this site, over holidays, hopefully... wassat

YMC shirts and handout for conference reflection (also on yale mc link to right) are ready and waiting for you all, make sure you stop by Petela's room.

Pics for Princeton and Yale MC award winners will be on Tuesday, after the Yearbook grouphotos at 12:25 in new gym, bring awards, gavels and wear conference TShirt.

Finally, need deposits ASAP ($50 or 100) for those students wanting to attend Harvard or Penn MCongress in February. See Petela this week if interested.

Petela smile
