RYE BROOK, N.Y. - Six Blind Brook students from Port Chester, Rye Brook and Rye brought home awards from this month's Johns Hopkins Model U.N. Conference in Baltimore.
Ben Kanfer and Rachel Simon both received the Best Delegate awards, Lara Cohen was given an Outstanding Delegate award, while Alex Egol Matan Neuman and Kyle O’Neil received honorable mentions.
Adviser Nicole Simmons said she was impressed with the 35 students' work throughout the four-day event.
“Our Model U.N. Club has come so far in the last few years, as witnessed by the dedication of our 70-plus members,” she said.
“I am extremely proud of all of our Johns Hopkins Model U.N. delegates, as they prepared and performed incredibly throughout the four days.”
About 2,000 students from more than 180 schools around the world participated in the conference, which gives students experience with international affairs as they work to debate and write laws with other students.
