Model UN

2015/2016 Model UN Update:

Iroquois' Model United Nations delegation represented the country of France this year. There were many issues addressed at this year’s conference such as addressing cyber warfare, coordinating humanitarian relief efforts, and promoting religious tolerance, among others.

Our students did very well by writing three working papers to debate, and by collaborating on amendments with other countries. We also had several sophomores, Samantha Soder and Hailee Moks, step up to the plate and chair their committees. They did an excellent job!

The highlight of our conference was when our own Ian Brady won the runner up award for Best Delegate in the Security Council committee. He received an award for his contributions to the work of the committee and for the way he conducted himself and represented his country throughout this role-playing experience.

Ian Brady, Rebecca Campbell, and Jayme Cooper were all awarded the Model United Nations Scholarships valued at $4,000 for their academic achievement and participation in Model UN at Gannon University.

Much to our excitement, Ellie Cadden was awarded the Edward Lamb Scholarship valued at $12,000 based on her academic achievement, leadership and contributions to Model United Nations both at Gannon University and Iroquois.

We had a very successful year. We would like to thank the administration and school board for allowing us the opportunity to participate in this valuable program year after year. We truly appreciate it and look forward to the ongoing success of our program.
