JUNA 2012

WOW! We are so proud of Mrs. Armstrong and a select group of students in her gifted program. They did a great job representing Ellis at the JUNA (Junior United Nations Assembly of Alabama) at Birmingham Southern College January 26th-27th. Brittany H., Sierra G., Bre'Anna P., Genesis T., and Chancelyn W., served as delegates from France. They presented a resolution to establish a Sports Education Program for Refugee Children (SEPRC) which would provide unaccompanied children of refugee camps an alternative to becoming child soldiers.

Lily C., Nicole C., Caitlin K., and Meagan W., served as delegates from the United Kingdom. Their resolution to reduce child mortality in Nigeria by using a program called Mobile Midwife was passed at the committee meeting. This group also received Honorable Mention in Outstanding Resolution. (Thanks, Ms. Connor for your help with costumes!)
