Congratulations Model UN
HPHS Model UN sponsors Joe Brysiewicz and Lindsey Choy wish to extend congratulations to Model UN Presidents Elizabeth Kapnick (’11), Molly Harris (’11) and the entire Model UN team for their outstanding performance at the 37th Annual National High School Model United Nations (NHSMUN) Conference in New York City. Representing the United States and Pakistan, our students joined over 2,000 high school students from countries around the world, for 4 days of debating international crises and drafting multilateral resolutions.
The conference included opportunities to attend a mission briefing with Senior Advisor to the U.S. Mission and U.S. Ambassador (Ret.) Joseph Melrose at the U.S. Embassy in New York and closing ceremonies at the United Nations complex. Mollie Krent (’11) received special recognition for an outstanding performance as Justice Krent on the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Many members of the Highland Park team delegation received NHSMUN’s individual honor of speaking for or against their particular committee’s resolution at the plenary session held in the United Nations complex, including Elizabeth Kapnick, Marissa Medansky, Alex Rush (’11), Burton Chaikin, Supritha Prasad, Alexandra Swanson (’12), Michael Greenberger (’13), and Suzanne Warshell (’14). All of the members admirably represented Highland Park High School through their dedication and hard work.
