Model Arab League brings home awards
The Citadel's Model Arab League delegation brought home three awards at this year's Model Arab League meeting held in March at Converse College in Spartanburg, S.C.
The delegation included Nick Slater, Ryan Trenck, Jennifer Burch, Hampton Cokeley, Nick Juliano, Charles Stewart, Baron Windham, Joseph Hoffman and Mike Lacey along with faculty advisor Sarah Tenney, assistant professor of political science.
In addition to an honorable mention award for the overall delegation's representation of Saudi Arabia, Ryan Trenck received an honorable mention for his contribution to the Council on Palestinian Affairs, and Nick Slater won an Outstanding Delegate Award for his work on the Council of Arab Environmental Ministers.
Sponsored by the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations, the Model Arab League (MAL) program provides students across the United States an opportunity to learn about the politics and history of the Arab world, and the arts of diplomacy and public speech. The "mock" conference of the Arab League helps prepare students to be knowledgeable, well-trained, and effective citizens as well as civic and public affairs leaders.
