We continue to hear news of many recognitions for our students and faculty in a broad range of fields. We have collected a number of them here, but please forgive us if we have overlooked any!

Diplomacy

Waterford’s Model UN team attended the Utah High School Model United Nations Conference on Tuesday, April 21. This is only the team’s first year and second competition — but their relative newness did not hinder their success! Representing Nigeria and Tonga, the twenty team members spent the day in committee sessions debating policy and writing resolution papers. The team as a whole received the “Distinguished Participation” award, recognizing the team members’ diplomacy and participation in the committee sessions. Of the eleven policy papers submitted, ten received Superior ratings. Congratulations to all team members!

Education

Math teacher Tyler Waterhouse recently received a fellowship to the prestigious Klingenstein Summer Institute, offered by the Teachers College at Columbia University. From their website: “Dedicated to affirming beginning teachers and encouraging their continued growth, the Klingenstein Summer Institute gathers 75 teachers from around the world for an exploration of teaching styles, educational philosophies, educational issues and personal development. Meeting for two weeks in late June, the Institute challenges these participants to embrace the complexities of the classroom and to explore the art of teaching and the delicate balance of subject mastery, judgment, intuition and creativity.”
