Senior Vince Glidden of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School’s Model United Nations (MUN) team competed along with 12 other All-American students at the WEMUN Expo in Beijing, China, August 4-7, 2017.

MUN Conferences are educational simulations or academic competitions in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations, according to event officials. WEMUN is the largest conference in Asia drawing over 2,000 delegates from 30 countries.

Glidden won an individual first-place award at the WEMUN Expo, earning him the Best Delegate.

The students selected for the All-American MUN Team were based on their competitive MUN experience, leadership and academic performance. Glidden's appointment to the All-American team makes the sixth STVM student selected for the All-American MUN Team since 2014.

Glidden also won the Best Delegate award at The Ohio State University MUN Conference and many other awards during the 2016-2017 season. He is the co-President of the STVM Ambassador Leadership Team and served on the Ohio Attorney General's Teen Leadership Board in Columbus, Ohio.
