Mercyhurst Model UN Team earns first place honors

The Mercyhurst Model UN team, coached by Dr. Brian Ripley and Dr. Michele Crumley, braved the cold and traveled to Lakeland College in Cleveland on Saturday, Feb. 3, where they won first place in a competition against Baldwin-Wallace, Lakeland, and Ohio Wesleyan. In debating the topic of the day − the future of Kosovo − several Mercyhurst students received individual recognition including “superior” awards to Lindsey Kole and Mark Schneider and “excellent” awards to Mike Cilladi, Nicole Kubit, Tim Raley, and Matt Visco.
