Contributed by Michael Ganci, Syntax for The Bronxville School

May 29, 2019: Members of the Bronxville High School Model United Nations Club, who assumed the roles of U.N. ambassadors to debate a variety of current issues, earned awards at the Heschel Model United Nations Conference, held in New York City on May 19. 

Over the course of the conference, the student-delegates participated in various committees and advocated their positions. Having learned about the specific country they had been assigned to, each student understood the complexity of resolving different problems and current issues.

As a result of their outstanding performances, four students earned awards:

James Ferguson won the best delegate award in the Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) on the topic of education in developing countries experiencing turmoil.

Isabelle Kennedy won the best delegate award in the Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) on the topic of Iranian and Russian influence on Syria.

Annabelle Krause won the outstanding delegate award in the Security Council on the topic of the Yemen Civil War.

Hailey Mullen won the best delegate award in the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) on the topic of Iran’s nuclear program.

Students said the experience helped build camaraderie among club members, who enjoyed strengthening the friendships they have made.

"We're all very proud of the work these thirteen students produced during the conference,” said Richard Diefenbach, teacher and club adviser. "HeschMUN is the final competition this year ending a very successful year for the Bronxville Model United Nations Club.”

By Susan Meaney, Member, Bronxville Non-Partisan Committee for the Nomination and Election of School Trustees

May 29, 2019:  The Bronxville Non-Partisan Committee for the Nomination and Election of School Trustees ("NPC") announced the individuals who have applied to be placed on the ballot for election to the NPC. One representative from each of Bronxville’s seven voting districts will be elected to serve a three-year term. 

The candidates seeking membership on the NPC are Dean Vanderwarker (District 16); Ed Reilly (District 17); Jeff Hine (District 18); Nick Willoughby (District 19); Beata Gocyk-Farber (District 20); Lee Huang (District 21); and Anthony Mercando (District 22).

Voting begins on May 28 and continues through June 11 via online ballot. All residents of Bronxville are eligible and encouraged to vote for the representative in their district. Details about the voting process, including brief bios and statements from each candidate are available on the NPC website, www.bronxvillenpc.com.

Once elected, the seven new members of the NPC will join the fourteen remaining members. Together, the people who serve on the NPC work to recruit, vet, and nominate the school board trustee candidates each year.

The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of trustees of the Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. The NPC, which consists of three elected representatives from each of Bronxville's seven election districts, solicits qualified residents who are interested in serving as school trustee and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school district election each May.
