THS Model Congress Team very successful at the University of Pennsylvania


Penn Model Congress is a four-day simulation of legislative process that includes 730 students from 38 schools across the country. I’m excited to announce that my ten-person team passed 8 out of their 9 bills through committee sessions and Bridget Weston, our senior leader, was selected as the Secretary of Defense in the President’s cabinet. We came home with 5 Honorable Mention awards (2nd best in committee session).

Here are our five award winners:

* Ethan Bachand ’18 – Senate – Commerce Science & Transportation
* Aravind Sureshbabu ’16 – Senate – Finance
* Cristina Catana ’17 – House – Narcotics & Drug Trafficking
* Stefano Mancini ’18 – House – Narcotics & Drug Trafficking
* Nicholas Marchenko ’17 – Senate – Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs

We would all like to thank BEI for your generous grant that made this trip possible. Please see the attached PDF file with pictures and quotes from our students.

Thank you from all of us at THS Model Congress,

Ms. Katie Boland
