Eighteen PTS Model UN HS delegates will be traveling to the Netherlands for the 55th annual The Hague International Model UN conference (THIMUN) on January 21- 28. 2,000 students from schools all over the world gather to engage in global diplomacy. PTS students will be representing the west central African nation of Gabon (which includes a seat on the prestigious UN Security Council - one of only 15 schools in the world to receive this designation!) and Greenpeace, the venerable environmental advocacy organization. In addition, Signe Marthinsson is serving as Deputy Chair in the General Assembly 2nd Committee, the only THIMUN officer representing a school in the United States. Quite an honor! Signe's father, Mr. Per Marthinsson, also attended THIMUN in the 90s. Christopher and Nicole Oeltjen's mother, Ms. Stratego Castanes, attended THIMUN in the 1980s.
