Harold Hauer Outreach Programs

Board President Lee Wilwerding and May River High School students.

Harold Hauer was a longtime member of the World Affairs Council and a staunch supporter of our Outreach Programs involving the students of the Beaufort County School System. He was devoted to educating students in our community on issues of global importance.  Harold looked at these programs as WACHH’s investment in the future.  In our every-changing world, the development of a globally informed citizenry is more important than ever.  Many of you share this same vision by your willing financial support of these two programs, Academic WorldQuest (AWQ) and Model United Nations (MUN).

Academic WorldQuest is a program sponsored by the World Affairs Council of America.  While it is an optional program for the various World Affairs Councils to participate in, WACHH opted to join in 2012 and today this program is operating in all six of the Beaufort County High Schools.  We have been pleased with the participation by the schools and it is particularly rewarding to watch these young students invest the time necessary to compete locally and nationally.  The 2019 Champions, Bluffton HS won the 2020 local competition.   Read more

The Model UN program is a Beaufort County Schools program that we support.  Over the past few years this has been purely financial support to defray expenses at the Statesboro Regional Competition for Bluffton HS.  We've added  Beaufort HS and Hilton Head Prep program to the list of schools we are supporting .  For 2020 we are taking our support up a few notches thanks to your willingness to mentor these young students on the nuances of the countries that they have been assigned as their focus.  This is clearly a new venture that we are excited about and are thankful to all of you who have volunteered to be Mentors.
