After eight months of hard work and many revisions of their bills, on May 20th the eighth graders participated in the 27th annual Packer Model Congress. The road to Model Congress was a little bumpy, with changing formats and deadlines this year, but our resilient students powered through and did an amazing job. Four students won the coveted “Golden Gavel” award for best legislator – Kudos to Lily B., Antonio C., Vikram K., and Sophia P.-O. Graduating senior, Delphine M., was awarded with the best chairperson plaque. We would also like to recognize our other upper school students, Lynn H. and Nicole S., who gave up some very valuable sleep and volunteered to act as chairs and parliamentarians. We are proud of all our young legislators and look forward to making next year’s Model Congress another resounding success.
