Demonstrating their knowledge and intellect regarding international issues, three Glen Cove High School students, along with their adviser Christopher Contorno, participated in the Foreign Policy Association Conference on June 28 at the New York University Midtown Center. The students – Michael Banks, Christopher Christodoulou and Daniel Wlordarczyck – are all members of the school’s Model United Nations Club.
The conference provides teachers whose instruction focuses on foreign policy issues with important skills and knowledge to bring back to their respective classrooms through a variety of workshops and special speakers. In a session called the “Pilot Classroom,” students took part in a sample lesson taught by one of the teachers at the institute. Following this lesson, the students visited the headquarters of J.P. Morgan Chase and had lunch with Ambassador Jeffrey DeLaurentis, U.S. alternate representative for special political affairs at the United Nations. During this meeting, Ambassador DeLaurentis (seen here with Daniel, Chris and Michael) spoke to the students about foreign policy issues facing the United States and the nation’s current position in the realm of international relations, followed by a question-and-answer session.
