On Thursday and Friday afternoons last week, River Dell’s new Model UN club took a trip to Bergen County Academies in Hackensack to compete in their annual competition. This was the group’s first conference and the 12 members had a great experience going and speaking as delegates of different countries for different social and political world issues.
Notably, two of our members took home awards Friday evening. Jake Campbell, who spoke as delegate for France on health issues in the WHO committee, took home Best Delegate award, the highest award in that category. Chris Barkachi fought valiantly as General Patroclus in the Trojan War. Chris took home an Honorable Delegate award from that war. Mr. Peter Pavone is the club's adviser.
