Head Chair: Richard Montes

My name is Richard Montes, and I am thrilled to be your chair for this year’s WHS MUN conference! For the past four years, I have been a part of Whitney HIgh School Model United Nations. Model UN has given me tremendous opportunities to learn about the world. The benefits that coincide with MUN are multitudinous, and I attribute much of my own personal development to this program.

Outside of Model United Nations, I am a passionate Hiker and Biker. My favorite trail has got to be Sapphire Falls near Rancho Cucamonga. I’m also in cabinet for ALAS, The Association of Latin American Students. Our goal is to empower Latino students and explore the Latin Culture through Dance, Food, Music, etc.  My co-chair and I will make sure that you have the opportunity to learn Model UN at a competitive, yet enjoyable level. I truly hope that WHS MUN Novice 6 will be a memorable and informative starting point for your Model United Nations journeys. Good luck and see you all in debate!
