Student-representatives of Connetquot High School’s Model United Nations Club recently participated in the National High School Model United Nation’s International Conference held in Manhattan, joining more than 1,400 students from across the globe in the prestigious event. 

The multi-day field trip consisted of debates, discussions and culminated with an awards ceremony held at UN headquarters. Out of the 1,400 attending students, only 12 were asked to speak at the General Assembly Hall to represent their ideas and solutions, including Connetquot High School students Brendan Falabella and Tyler Zere. 

According to Model UN Club adviser Jennifer Bay, both students did a fabulous job speaking in front of not only all of the delegates, but diplomats, ambassadors, advisers and conference staff as well. Brendan was then awarded first place in his committee and Tyler was awarded second place in his, with each committee consisting of 170-200 students each. 

“All of the students who attended did an amazing job and I couldn't be prouder of them,” said Ms. Bay. “Their hard work and dedication leave me speechless; they are the leaders of tomorrow, and trust me when I say that our future is in good hands.”
