Model UN on the Outer Banks

In many ways the Outer Banks is a lot like any other tight knit community. Certainly in the summer, itâåÛåªs a thriving, bustling city that whose population expands tenfold every week. But here in the off season, with the north wind howling outside our windows, and autumn leaves swirling across our yards, we we look to those things that make this such a great place to live.

And certainly our Dare County schools are at the top of the list.

Last night the First Flight High School Model UN held a fundraising dinner at the Outer Banks Brewing Station. This is a program that engages kids in real world scenarios and really helps them to understand the complexity of our world and the cultures that of the countries of the UN.

It was a wonderful night with engaged and enthusiastic parents and teachers and some of the best and the brightest of the schoolâåÛåªs students. And with with 10 or 12 dishes prepared by award winning Chef Pok (who was born in Thailand), it was a wonderful evening.
