My name is Landon Echols and I am a junior in the Wharton School, studying economics with a concentration in business economics and public policy. I have been a judge and held various leadership positions since his freshman year at Penn. I am from Arroyo Grande High School in Arroyo Grande, CA and, although I did not have a model congress team in high school, I actively participated in speech and debate programs. I am involved in political clubs at Penn as well as the business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi. Anyone can contact me regarding questions about the conference, Penn, or college in general at I am very excited to be judging my third Penn Model Congress conference and hope everyone has a great time!

I'm Cass, a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences interested in majoring in psychology and international relations and minoring in urban education. I went to School for Advanced Studies (North) in Miami, Florida (where I was born and raised). Since I've been at Penn, I've gotten involved in the Penn political review and the international affairs association. Feel free to email me at with any questions at all--don't be shy!
