TCC Model United Nations receives award at national conference

Tallahassee, Fla. (November 19, 2013) – Tallahassee Community College Model United Nations (TCCMUN), an internationally recognized academic team that participates in simulations of the United Nations around the world, recently participated in the Model United Nations in Washington, D.C. The conference hosted 72 colleges and universities that brought 531 students, 38 percent of whom were from outside the United States. TCCMUN returned with the prestigious honorable delegation award.


The students debated international politics and policy, discussing topics such as the regulation of multinational corporations in free trade zones, the return and reintegration of refugees, and the democratization of the United Nations’ structure. The conference’s opening ceremonies were held in the U.S. Capitol, giving students real hands-on political experience.

TCCMUN represented the People's Republic of Bangladesh, led by head delegate Spencer Cokely. He was joined by TCCMUN team president Katie Lilly and vice president James Sellers. Other TCC students that were part of the delegation were veteran team member Truitt Wilson and freshman Lindsay Baird, who was attending her first collegiate-level conference.

TCCMUN will send a delegation of 20 students to compete in the Southern Regional Model United Nations Conference in Atlanta, November 21-24. Students interested in joining TCCMUN may contact the team’s advisers, Richard Murgo at (850) 201-8145 or Thomas Waller at (850) 201-8159.
