Student members of Roman Catholic High School’s World Affairs Club joined other high school students from Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and around the world last month in the third annual International Student Summit at Temple University’s Fox School of Business in Philadelphia.
The summit simulated an international conference on nuclear security convened by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Roman Catholic student delegates included Logan Moore, William Masgai, Tyler Pizzo, Peter Scharf, Stephen Waters, Connor Kain, Tyler Brady, Edward Dunbar, Francis McLaverty and Ivan Soltero.
The delegates represented 10 different countries in the roles of senior government officials, including high-level military leaders and senior diplomats, from both established nuclear powers and potential nuclear weapons states.
Delegates were charged with strengthening an international framework to secure, to the fullest extent, all existing nuclear weapons and material sites around the world.
Roman students have been participating in the educational programs of the Philadelphia World Affairs Council for more than 20 years.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
