New Semester, New Opportunities

It’s a new semester for the IRC, and it comes on the heels of a fantastic fall. Last semester, we hosted WMHSMUN XXIX, traveled to four conferences, shared our Tribe Pride at numerous tailgates, and came this close to winning IM soccer!

WMHSMUN XXIX brought the club together for the first big conference of the year, and the conference wrapped up with a flourish in the Virginia Room of the Williamsburg Lodge. Secretary-General Brendan McNamara ’16 passed the torch to Alyssa Harrison ’17, and we’re looking forward to a memorable WMHSMUN XXX next fall.

IRCares raised over $2,000 for the Building Goodness Foundation so far, and the club looks forward to the classic Developing World Gallery auction in the spring. Our alumni relations committee, IRContinues, hosted a successful homecoming and winter event to connect alums and current students.

This upcoming semester promises even more events and opportunities. We will start the spring with WMIDMUN XIV (and over 800 middle schoolers!) in February, and wrap it up with &MUN IV in April. Our MUN team will travel to Montreal, West Point, Chicago, and Charlottesville, and nine students will represent W&M at WorldMUN in Rome.

Interested in learning more about the IRC and how you can get involved in the spring? Come by our meetings on Tuesdays at 7:30pm in Small 110!

All the best,

Kailyn Hornbeck, IRC President 2015-2016
