Pacific Ridge Delegates Excel at Columbia University Model United Nations Conference
Seventeen students from Pacific Ridge School joined more than 800 high school delegates from across the country at Columbia University's 15th annual Model United Nations Conference and Exposition (CMUNCE) on January 14-17.
CMUNCE is one of the nation's premiere Model United Nations conferences, and is known for its fast-paced crisis committees, which allow students to react quickly and address real-world scenarios in international affairs. Committees ranged from the modern (the United Nations CyberSecurity Task Force) to the traditional (the Persian Constitutional Revolution). Congratulations to all the participants, including the following award winners:
Best Delegate: Josh Kahn '16, Alyssa Martindale '17, Michael Rattner '18, Connie Yu '18
Outstanding Delegate: Robert Farmer '17
Honorable Mention: Andrew Duca '17, Jonah Gerke '17
