Elmont's Model UN Team Upholds Tradition of Excellence


china9 1aThe award winning Elmont Memorial High School Model United Nations team after rigorous preparation and debate has emerged victorious as the Best Small Delegation at the WEMUN conference in BeijingChina.

Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations with participants from national and international schools competing to debate issues which plague the international community. ElmontMemorialHigh School’s Model United Nations Program has had a long history of excellence, and unparallelled success winning countless awards since the clubs inception. The program began in 1978 under the guidance of the visionary educator Mr. Lee Marcus. At that time, 9 student pioneers went to the North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN) conference at GeorgetownUniversity representing the nation of Bolivia. 35 years later, another group of 9 students with deep reverence for those who came before, especially the original 9 in 1978, carried the flag and went to the WE MODEL UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE (WEMUN EXPO). 

On July 28th, these 9 students: James Bailey, Michael Bediako, Darnell Marescot, Leanna Faulk, Ashley Reese, Mykelle Richburg,  Christian Butron, Chukwudi Kanu, and Isaiah Geneao embarked on their journey to China representing the nation of Bolivia and the Russian Federation. The conference featured schools from 22 countries and approximately 1500 students who all have the potential to be the future leaders of their respective countries, but yet, Elmont triumphed and emerged victorious.  The Individual awards garnered are listed below.

china9 2aAshley Reese:The WeMun conference was by far one of the best experiences in my life. From spending my 17th birthday in China to making long lasting friendships with students from all over the world. Those ten days of my life I will truly never forget. It feels especially great to come home with the win, not just for me nor my family but for the community as a whole. It's nice to know I made everyone proud and I would definitely make a trip back to China in the up in coming years”

And what is it to cease breathing ...


040226092356Residents of The Parkhurst Civic Association of Elmont, NY are deeply saddened by the death of their former President and neighbor, Livingston Chrichlow. We Thank You.  It is difficult to express in mere words how deeply we feel his passing.

Cheryl Lee, President of Parkhurst, remembers meeting Mr Chrichlow over 25 years ago at a civic meeting, “our relationship blossomed into a lifelong learning experience.   I can proudly say that I was mentored by the best” “… I will never forget his thoughtfulness, kindness, patience and wisdom.  When I complained about how busy I was, his mantra was “God first, family next and everything else would fall into place.””

In 2004, Mr. Chrichlow received the inaugural 1st Annual Elmont Online – ECAP Dr. Carter G. Woodson Award. “He was one of Elmont’s African American trail blazers” said Allyson Phillips, Chairperson of the Elmont Black History Month Committee. “He was among the first Black people to move to Elmont and survived cross burnings on his lawn in the 70’s. He exemplified human dignity and is surely one of the shoulders upon which the Elmont Online – Highlighting Success Black History Month Celebration is built.”

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
