RVC Model U.N. chosen as outstanding delegation
The Rock Valley College Model United Nations team recently attended the National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference in Washington, D.C. The team was chosen as one of only six outstanding delegations at the conference.
The NMUN drew delegates from all over the world as more than 500 college/university students participated in discussions of issues at the forefront of international relations. The conference included a crisis simulation in the Security Council and committee briefings by distinguished speakers from the Washington, D.C., diplomatic community.
Rock Valley College was the only Illinois school to receive an award. The RVC students who attended were Ashley N. Palin, Evan M. Frisella, Nathan P. Tripp, Thomas Michael Bouril, Cyrene Krey, Yempabou C. Lompo, Badmaagarav Purevjav, Liana Kirillova and Aysha Uddin. The team is advised by RVC faculty members Crystal Dinwiddie and Dr. Martin Quirk. They are assisted by community member and advising intern James Dewitz.
