The 2019 Model United Nations Team wins another year the "Honorable Mention Award"
MCC Model United Nations Team competed in April in New York City along with over 120 colleges and universities and 5,000 students in a simulation representing diplomats from a country much different than their own. The old saying "you never know until you walk in another person's shoes" was so true for these 14 students. MCC represented the country of North Macedonia. Our students work tirelessly for several weeks in class learning about this country, understanding their foreign policy, culture, their needs, their place in the United Nations. Basically, our students became diplomats from North Macedonia. Our students obtained:
Accountability for their own opinions and actions
Creative and critical life skills
Understand global perspectives and issues
Learned leadership styles and skills
Gained an understanding about the total interdependence of the world
Became appreciative of different cultures and their influence on each other
Worked in a team environment, listening and learning about other ideas
If you meet or if any of these student are in your class, please stop and congratulate them. This year's team was:
