MHS Students Receive ‘Best Large Delegation’ at Yale University’s 25th Annual Model Congress Conference
In December, Mamaroneck High School’s Model Congress Club students competed in Yale University’s 25th Annual Model Congress conference, along with more than 750 students representing 34 schools from across the country and were named “Best Large Delegation”, a recognition MHS last earned back in 2012. Students debated original legislation on topics ranging from climate change and cryptocurrency to nuclear arms production.
In addition to the group honor, a host of other students won individual awards. Model Congress is one of the oldest clubs at Mamaroneck High School and is completely student run, with the guidance of club advisers Lauren Albert and Albert Paez. Club members talk frequently about the skills they learn through their involvement and how these skills transfer to other areas of their lives.
