Program History



A Tribute to Mr. Lynn Aase:

On April 21, 2021, Lynn Aase passed.  This is a moment of great loss, but also a moment of fond remembrance for the thousands of young leaders whom Mr. Aase impacted.

Lynn Aase is the reason we are all here.  Over 40 years ago, Mr. Aase had the vision and determination to bring an emerging debate program to a public school in Southern California.  It did not take long for Mr. Aase to transform HBHS MUN into a world-renowned debate team.  For years, he motivated, trained and taught the future leaders of America.  Because of him, students were allowed to travel and discuss the important issues of their time.  His students learned, laughed, stressed and emerged as confident thinkers and diplomats.  

Huntington Beach High School, Model United Nations, and Education has lost a friend and mentor.  Gone but never forgotten, we will continue to celebrate his life and the positive impact he had on so many.  Mr. Lynn Aase, your students will never forget you.  Thank you for all you did to better those around you. 


Your legacy lives on.
