Last weekend, the Baylor Debate Team travelled to San Francisco to participate in Harvard Model Congress, which is a simulation of our national government where students across the world come to represent a variety of US officials from the Presidential Cabinet to the FBI. When Baylor students arrived, they spent their time enjoying the sights in San Francisco such as Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown. After a fun-filled first day, Baylor got to work the following three days.
After hours of hard work, debating tirelessly in defense of their positions, and copious amounts of coffee and tea, several Baylor students won accolades for their outstanding efforts in their respective committees. Baylor’s award winners from the conference were senior Elodie Nix who won an Honorable Mention in the Senate Intelligence Committee, junior Max Montague who won Best Delegate in the House of Energy and Commerce, and, finally, senior Tommy Knight who won best delegate in the Senate of Environment and Public Works Committee.
If any of you are interested in participating in HMC 2020 or other conferences like Model United Nations and Youth in Government, please contact me or our faculty sponsor, David Conwell.
