Heritage MUN claims 25 awards at NAIMUN LIV

News

Heritage’s Model United Nations (MUN) team claimed 25 awards during its weekend at NAIMUN LIV, the “Super Bowl” of Model UN events, hosted by Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.  Beating its previous year’s record of 14 awards, students claimed five “Best Delegate” and six “Outstanding Delegate” titles. American Heritage placed third of 175 schools in attendance.

“We also had an incredible time thanks largely to our interaction with former Heritage students in the Washington, D.C. area,” said MUN advisor and history teacher Mr. Mark Gruskin.

Matthew Robinson (’13) is the President of the Georgetown International Relations Association and was the Director-General of the conference. Rayne Sullivan (’13) and Rachel Shapiro (’16) led students on a tour of the Georgetown campus and Georgetown community the Sunday of the conference. Director of Logistics at the State Department David Ceasar (’03) arranged a private tour of the Capitol and a day at the State Department for students, where he took them into conference rooms and assembly halls.

“It was an incredible opportunity and learning experience for our students, and we are greatly indebted to David for all of the time he gave to our group,” said Mr. Gruskin.
