Floral Park Model UN Earns Honors

The Floral Park Memorial Model United Nations team participated in the William and Mary High School Model UN conference, in Williamsburg, Virginia. The group of 11 students was accompanied by Mrs. Deborah Francis, adviser of the Model UN club. The team explored the historical area before getting to work and doing extensive research on a wide variety of topics. Committees ranged from UN Women to Nixon’s National Security Council. After three long days of hard work, four students from Floral Park took home awards. Senior Danielle Ashbahian and freshman Hannah DiMaggio both won honorable mention, and juniors Harry Schlecter and Roopanshi Rampal won outstanding delegate in their committees. All of the delegates displayed diplomacy and worked very hard throughout the weekend to research and become experts in their topic. More importantly, they all had a great time and will be looking forward to future conferences.
