Carey Seventh-Grader Earns MUN Conference Award

H. Frank Carey seventh-grader Ava Pelzer earned an honorable mention at the Hofstra Model United Nations Conference, marking the first time in the school’s history that a seventh grade student earned such an honor. 

Traditionally, only older students compete at these conferences, but Ava took part in the ‘ACEMUN’ program, where Carey juniors and seniors teach Model United Nations skills to fifth- and sixth-graders at an afterschool program at the Franklin Square Elementary School District.

Congratulations to Ava, and kudos to Model UN Adviser Mr. Patrick Frino.
