Model United Nations alumni group receives Community Connection Grant

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May 19, 2014) – An organization that supports Tallahassee Community College’s Model United Nations team received a $1,000 grant from a local Wells Fargo bank branch.

Tallahassee Southern Model United Nations, a group comprised of TCC Model United Nations alumni, collected the Community Connection Grant Thursday, May 8, from Wells Fargo’s North Monroe Street branch. The group was chosen to receive the award by Big Bend District Manager Wendy Parrish.

“We are pleased to announce that this upcoming school year, TSMUN will be able to provide scholarships for students to attend Tallahassee Community College,” said Bugra Demirel, president of the TSMUN board of directors.

Demirel joined fellow difference-makers from the community at Aloft Tallahassee Downtown for a celebratory breakfast to share the work TSMUN does to raise awareness of global issues. He added that the organization is eager to begin their relationship with Wells Fargo as a community partner.

TSMUN supports current TCC Model U.N. students in hosting an educational conference for middle and high school students in the region. In addition, TSMUN brings speakers to the Tallahassee area to discuss matters of international importance.

“For close to two decades, TSMUN has been teaching the middle and high school students of our area about global concerns and how to join together to solve them,” said Demirel.

Every year, Wells Fargo allows each of its branch locations to vote on a charity or school of their choice to offer a Community Connection Grant.
