Whereas, Richland Northeast High School's Model United Nations National team was one of five teams that received a first place Gold Medal Award of Distinction at the National High School Model United Nations Conference in New York in March of 1993; and
Whereas, this is the fourth year in a row that the school's team has placed first and the school's fifth year overall placing first; and
Whereas, the team also won the competition's Research Award for the sixth time in the award's six-year history; and
Whereas, the eighteen-member team competed against nineteen hundred other students from one hundred fifty schools throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe; and
Whereas, the Model United Nation's competition measures the student's knowledge of foreign countries and international policy making and judges the delegates research and public speaking skills, as well as their ability to represent a particular country's views and to negotiate with other "nations" to bring about change; and
Whereas, the faculty adviser for the team is Lynn Washington and the team members are Douglas Brown, Alcide Honore, Larry Thompson, Eli Poliakoff, Laura Bundrick, Jerome Stover, Anne Knight, Jacob Greenberg, Lauren Griswold, Jennifer Wooten, Charlie Stalker, Merie Cobb, David Murray, Vivica Williams, Phoebe Wolfskill, Burke Adams, Mary Kathleen Tally, and Carrie Bundricks; and
Whereas, Ms. Washington and these students, who were the youngest team the school has sent to the competition having lost eleven seniors last year, should be congratulated for their dedication, diligence, and hard work and their families and friends commended for their assistance and unwavering support.
