Riverview Gardens Model United Nations Team Passes UN Resolution
Riverview's team members Jessica Wright, Adina Nelson, Johnathan Johnson, Billy Washington, Juanita Gregory, Charles Tate, Tra'vell Thomas, Renezia Steed, and Alexius Turner wrote and presented a resolution that passed at Saturday's Model United Nations convention. Their resolution was written from the perspective of Haiti to help create a sustainable and inexpensive solution to provide millions of Haitians access to clean drinking water that would be filtered by a solar power desalination system.
School facilitator Nicholas Metropolous indicated, “not only did our team's resolution pass, but it passed with 45 countries voting yes, 2 nations voting no and only 1 nation abstaining from voting.”
The RGMUN team’s resolution passed by the largest margin of any of the participating schools and teams. It was one of only three resolutions to pass at the conference with over thirty schools participating in the event. Riverview's team is held in high regard and regional ranking.
Metropolous adds, “Several of our team members are in the running for possible Model UN college scholarships because of their display of such promise at the competition this weekend.”
