Three South Carolina high schools were awarded top honors at the 37th annual Model United Nations at Winthrop University. Held March 20-22 in Tillman Hall and the DiGiorgio Campus Center, the program involved hundreds of students representing nearly 30 high schools from North and South Carolina. An awards ceremony Friday afternoon capped two days of deliberations over world events centered around this year’s theme of “Globalization: Peace, Security and Development.”
The Russian team from Pinewood Preparatory School, which included Ben Gamble, Bobby Thomas, Logan Dwyer and Mattie Piness, took the Winthrop Cup for best all around high school.
