22 Students from Northport High School participated in this year’s Model
United Nations Conference at Hofstra University on March 13.
Participants from thirteen high schools across Long Island took on the
roles of different countries across six different committees. Students
worked together to develop resolutions to address a myriad of issues,
including the potential colonization of Mars, the treatment and
placement of refugees, the future of the global oil market, agricultural
development and food security in the developing world, and more.
Additionally, NHS students Katie Meadows and Nick Bertos received
honorable mentions, and Isabella DeBrino was named “Outstanding
Delegate” at the conference. Well done, students!
Advisors Mr. Jensen, Mrs. Moore, and Mr. Krahel commend all of this
year’s participants for dedicating time and dedication towards
developing a better understanding of global problems, and broadening
their understanding of how diplomacy can be used to address such a wide
range of issues.
