Paraguayan Students Participate in Model OAS

Paraguayan Students participate in Model Organization of American States

Lucas Strubing Cartes, Gabriel Racca and Luis Molinas Paraguayan students at the University of Kansas (KU) participated in the 2012 Model Organization of American States (OAS) conference as part of the 10 member team.  The KU delegation was fortunate to be able to represent Paraguay.

More than 370 students from 34 universities represented diplomats from OAS member states.  They followed parliamentary procedures to debate and approve resolutions dealing with current issues on the Inter-American agenda.  The model was held in the Hall of the Americas at OAS headquarters in Washington, DC.

Lucas Strubing Cartes said ; “The experience has reaffirmed that I do want to work for the government, that I would like to be a diplomat.”
