On April 5th, senior students in the Academy for Health and Medical Sciences at Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School attended the CTAUN (Committee on Teaching About the United Nations) Conference 2019 entitled, “Global Warming”, held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. At the event, the students competed in the annual poster competition, resulting in six SCVTHS students being selected as contest winners.

The SCVTHS students who were selected are Mutka Patwari of Bridgewater, Evelyn Sullivan of Raritan, Gilliana Loyola of Green Brook, Kyle Amerman of Bridgewater, Janum Shah of Belle Mead and Dylan D’Costa of Warren.

SCVTHS Spanish Instructor Guillermo Reina spoke of the trip saying, “One of the many roles we have as teachers is to expose students to real life experiences or global challenges. I am very impressed by the creativity and level of awareness of our students. The challenge they researched this year was about global warming and they created wonderful posters with tremendous reflections that were recognized at the conference. When we facilitate learning opportunities, students create amazing outcomes impacting their personal and professional lives.”
