Model United Nations Team Claims Highest Awards

Model United Nations Team Fall 2020

Competing against top universities in the nation at the 2020 Virtual Washington Model United Nations conference, the RCCD Model United Nations team earned top honors in several categories including Highest Position Paper, Outstanding Position Paper, Highest Team, and Outstanding Delegation awards representing Eritrea.

“Being on the Model United Nations Team was a life-changing experience,” Caresse Boulter said. “MUN taught me about leadership, confidence, and research methods, all traits that will improve my life.”

This is an incredible achievement since the team of extremely motivated students were trained virtually. Although they were isolated at home and faced many obstacles, their determination to compete and win persisted.

Faculty advisors Dr. Dariush Haghighat and Dr. Kendralyn Webber could not be prouder of the talented and dedicated MUN team of young students.
