Titans Make Their Presence Known at Model United Nations
by Susan katsaros


From Dateline (March 13, 2003)

Cal State Fullerton's Model United Nations delegation made a splash in New Orleans, receiving the Outstanding Delegation Award for their efforts at the America West Model UN Conference.

In addition to the delegation award, three students came away with honors. Chris Salorio, representing Norway in the refugees committee, and Amy Roberts, who represented Argentina in the Organization of American States, were awarded the Outstanding Delegate Award. James Day, who represented Norway in the Security Council, was honored with the Distinguished Delegate Award.

Other delegation members were: Tony Contratto, who represented Canada in the Organization of American States; Jeremy Harrison, representative for Canada in the Economic and Social Council; Jani Ranasinghe, who served as the Argentinian representative in ECOSOC; Young Kim, who represented Sweden in ECOSOC; and Valerie Vanderwest, the Swedish representative in the World Health Organization.

“Chalk up another outstanding performance for this group,” said Alan Saltzstein, chair of the Division of Political Science and Criminal Justice and professor of political science.

In April, the delegation heads to New York to compete in the national and international Model United Nations competition.
