“Dag” Award Goes to Ross Brown

30 May

The Dag Hammarskjöld award, named for the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, is awarded to a graduating senior at Colgate every year. The award is given to the senior who has most improved the Colgate Model United Nations Society during his or her time at the University. The MUN Society is proud to announce that this year’s “Dag” recipient is Ross Brown.

 Among other accomplishments, Ross’s experience with MUN saw him serving as president of the Executive Board this past year and winning Best Delegate for his role as Canada’s delegate to NATO in MedMUN, his last MUN conference with Colgate. Ross’s absolute dedication to the Society as member and mentor will not soon be forgotten. Colgate MUN wishes the absolute best for Ross in his future. We will miss you.
