TCC Model United Nations wins top honors at regional conference

TCC MUN at SRMUN entire group.jpgTallahassee, Fla. (January 15, 2014) – Tallahassee Community College Model United Nations (TCCMUN), an internationally recognized academic team that participates in simulations of the United Nations around the world, recently walked away with top honors at the Southern Regional Model United Nations conference in Atlanta, GA.

The conference hosted 44 colleges and universities and brought more than 500 students together to discuss international issues such as prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, expanding access to fresh water and reforming energy policy to confront climate change. These discussions occurred in simulated United Nations committee sessions, where delegates worked to come to consensus and pass resolutions to confront these real-world challenges.

TCC’s team consisted of 18 students representing two countries, Bangladesh and Iraq. The TCC students representing Bangladesh were one of only four groups recognized with an Outstanding Delegation award, the highest award presented at the conference. Meanwhile, the TCC students representing Iraq were one of only five groups to receive a Distinguished Delegation award, the second-highest level of recognition. TCC’s Model United Nations delegations were the only delegations from a two-year college recognized with such top-level awards. One TCC student, Virginia King, was awarded a distinguished delegate award for her participation in her committee.

TCC’s MUN team is led by President Katie Lilly and Vice-President James Sellers. The head delegate of TCC’s Bangladeshi delegation was Truitt Wilson, and head delegate of the Iraqi delegation was Dustin Rost. These students, along with the rest of the TCC team, are looking forward in February to hosting Tallahassee Southern Model United Nations XVIII, the annual conference for the region’s high-school and middle-school students, as well as going to the National Model United Nations conference in New York City in April. There, they will represent the country of Israel.
