Adair Co. wins big at KUNA

From Candice Flatt
Gifted Coordinator for Adair County Schools

Adair County gifted and talented students attended the Kentucky United Nations Assembly (KUNA) on March 26-28, 2023, in Louisville, KY. The KUNA convention is sponsored by the Kentucky YMCA. It is a three-day competition where students take on roles of United Nations members. Adair County represented Haiti this year and won big.
  • Brody Blair will be next year's International Court of Justice President, which is a huge honor. He will be part of a leadership team that conducts the entire convention of over 2,000 students from all over Kentucky in 2024.
  • Ashton Flatt won the honor of Outstanding Ambassador.
  • Collin Pike and Ethan Coomer won the honor of Outstanding Global Village.
  • Bailey Watts won the honor of Showcase Round Winner for the International Court of Justice and Outstanding Advocate.
  • The debate team, consisting of Luc Powell, Ashton Flatt, Briley Burns, and Jonathan Gold, won the first round of their Resolution proposal.
  • Finally, the whole team won Premier Delegation.
As their team sponsor, I could not be more proud of this amazing group of young leaders. They all have bright futures ahead of them.
