A Model of Success


Under the leadership of advisor Diana Simulcik, 24 North Babylon Model United Nations students from the high school attended their first in a series of conferences representing UN member-states. They joined more than 400 student delegates from schools across Long Island and throughout New York City at the educational simulation.

The students attended the Patchogue-Medford MUN over a period of two days while discussing relevant and pressing international issues through a realistic replication of the United Nations. Student delegates discussed, debated and wrote resolutions working to solve international issues, promote peace and further the work of the UN.  

Committees such as the UN Human Rights Council (gender equality), Security Council (situation in Haiti), and African Union (terrorism), were attended by countries such as France, South Korea, Australia and Iraq. Special Commendation to Best Position paper for their respective committees went to Stephen Renzi (Slovakia, European Union), Victoria Machado (South Korea, Security Council) and Evgenia Kennedy (Mexico, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs).
