MCC Model United Nations Team Receives Distinction

MCC Model United Nations Team Makes Its Mark

The MCC Model United Nations Team competed this past weekend in the National Collegiate Conference at the New York City (the oldest and largest Model UN conference in the world) over a period of seven days.  The Conference offers this program to more than 4,000 college and university students from five continents with diverse cultural, religious and social backgrounds.  We are happy to say that our college received the second highest committee award this year, the “Distinguished Delegation Award”.  There were 250 colleges that competed for this award and Monroe Community College was the only “ two-year” college that received such an award among 250 universities and colleges who competed.

This is the second year in a row that Monroe Community College has been honored.  Last year we were honored with the “Honorable Mention” award, while this year we were able to raise the bar with the second highest award the “Distinguished Delegation Award”.  As a point of interest, the students who were selected as this year’s team were:
