Top Puppy - January 5, 2015
I would like to nominate Tommy LeMay for Top Puppy! Tommy joined Model UN just this year as a Junior and has quickly become one of the most integral members of our delegation. Since day 1, Tommy has committed himself to learning all he can about Model UN and has worked hard to apply all of his research to becoming an incredible delegate. At the most recent conference in Chicago, Tommy won an Honorable Mention award as Surinam in the Organization of American Staates Committee. But for Tommy this was not the end, the next day he wrote to his chair asking for constructive criticism about his performance at the conference so he could get better in the future. To quote the response he received; "for you to ask for constructive criticism as a junior in high school is quite impressive. Many adults avoid asking for constructive criticism out of fear and that ultimately hinders their ability to be successful." I am so proud of Tommy not only for the dedication he has shown to Model UN this year but for striving to be better - success is surely in his future! We are so lucky to have him as part of our team.
