Mason's new Model United Nations club has been doing very well this year. In February, they held a practice conference at Mason in order to organize a more formal event with a couple of local schools for next year. Students from Lakota West and East attended, and the conference ran smoothly under the guidance of our members and was a good learning experience for all. We will be attending a conference at Lakota West next month that will help this club build more ties and finalize logistical and creative needs for a more formal multi-school event next year.
