Three graduate students from the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri recently won top honors in the 2021 NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition: The Pandemic Game 2.0, and two are going on to represent the university in a global competition.
Joshua Kerlin, Adam Thorp and Joshua Veronica were part of placing teams — each composed of peers from other universities. Kerlin and Thorp will proceed to an “All Star” round, where a panel of prominent judges will identify the global winner.
More than 400 students from 120 universities and 30 countries participated. Mizzou was the only school with two students on first-place teams.
