A Salem College delegation participated in the 2014 National Model United Nations Conference in New York City at the end of April. Once again, the team demonstrated the outstanding quality of Salem’s standards of preparation and performance. The National Model United Nations Executive Board recognized the delegation of ten with a Distinguished Delegation award.
Representing the tiny South Pacific island nation of Kiribati, the Salem College Delegation acquitted themselves as if they represented the most powerful and influential nation in attendance at the conference. They demonstrated a depth of issue knowledge and topical competency that kept the representatives of the people of Kiribati at the forefront of the many development sessions and the drafting of the final United Nations General Assembly Resolutions.
The Salem Delegation was singled out among 2,700 delegates from nearly 200 colleges and universities attending the prestigious conference. Along with Head Delegate Rebecca Eggers and Barbie Sostaita and Shannon Salzman, Assistant Head Delegates, the team also includes Megan Cook, Courtney DeBerry, Brittany Deaton, Chelsea Jackson, Cydney Joiner, Roslyn Nixon, and Kristin Shook. Dr. David Foley, Associate Professor of Political Science, is the faculty adviser for the team.
