Secretary General- Alexander Sparkes
Salve, I’m Alexander. I’ve been involved with MUN ever since I joined the school, and have been involved in running SHREWSMUN since its inception. MUN has been quite an experience, and besides all the usual clichés, it has been a ceaseless source of amusement over the years. Unlike some of our more dedicated MUNers, my life does extend beyond points of order and the like. I spend most of my time in town, recycling or listening to music.
Enjoy the conference.
Secretary General- Tom Jackson
Tom has been a keen MUN-er for five years since joining Shrewsbury, and has delivered his characteristically long and detailed resolutions at conferences across the UK and France. Appropriately, he hopes to enter the diplomatic service after studying International Relations.
A keen runner, Tom has represented both his school and country in athletics and cross country up to a national level. He’s most likely to be found in Secretary General’s office, if you have any questions during the conference.
Deputy Secretary General- Johnny Snell
‘Hi, I’m Jonny, and I will be the Deputy-Secretary General for this year. Having partaken in the gallant pursuit of MUN for the best part of three years I am a naturally pretentious debater and am looking forward to hearing some stimulating debate on a variety of pressing issues this year. As an avid Tennis player and political enthusiast you’ll find me making wildly incorrect predictions for this years French Open whilst expounding some borderline extremist tory views in the middle of committees- I look forward to boring you to death in March. Sincerely, The DSG.’
Deputy Secretary General- Sophia Bureau
Sophia started MUN right away after joining Shrewsbury in the Sixth form, immediately earning a reputation as a detail-oriented delegate. She has also represented the school at the Cambridge University Debating Competition as a team with Charlie, and regularly campaigns to make Shrewsbury School a more environmentally-friendly institution.
Outside of the debating chamber, Sophia enjoys playing lacrosse and tennis . She has hopes of working in film production, so enjoys watching films with a critical eye.
Head of Press- Charlie Hancock
Charlie first got involved in MUN a year ago, but in that short time has amassed experience sitting on the Security Council in Paris and chairing an energetic Political Committee at last year’s ShrewsMUN. This year she’s taking the reins of The Salopian Weekender. Charlie’s long-term goal is to be a journalist for a major newspaper, and has already had an article published in The Guardian.
When she’s not studying or playing principal horn in the school’s symphony orchestra, Charlie is an active campaigner for causes she feels strongly about. As anybody who’s read her Twitter can attest, that covers just about everything.
President of Security Council- Nick Yale
My name is Nicholas, and this year I will be taking on the momentous task of Head of Security Council. I’m in my last year at Shrewsbury – afterwards I hope to take a gap year, find myself in Thailand and then apply to Oxford. I have had a life-long interest in chiromancy and am also a devout member of the Wessex Regionalist Party. Since I started at Shrewsbury, I have been a happy and healthy participant of MUN – I have also been active in a cultural and political campaign to reform our unjust hedge-trimming bylaws in the UK. Feel free to ask me about my hedge-trimming concerns, or about MUN.
