Knight Earns Award at Model United Nations


The 2024 JH Ohio Model United Nations (OMUN) Education Contest took place earlier this week in Columbus.

Through the process of role-playing, Riverside JH students became delegates of Madagascar to write, present, and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world.

Their resolution titled, “It’s Raining Cats and Dogs,” focused on the importance of animal health and the lack of education in Madagascar.

Riverside students influenced countries to adopt spaying, neutering, and vaccines for these animals, as well as, purchasing education material for schools.

Riverside students presented culturally based talent, participated in global education contests, and debated current global issues.

Valerie Knight earned an Outstanding Leadership Award.
