Model United Nations Class Lunches with Oklahoma Secretary of State
April 20, 2010
The Model United Nations class at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford recently enjoyed a lunch meeting at the Oklahoma State Capitol with Oklahoma Secretary of State Susan Savage.
Secretary Savage invited the SWOSU delegation when she recently attended an event at SWOSU.
The luncheon was a culmination of seven months of hard work by the SWOSU delegation, which represented Pakistan at the Midwest Model United Nations in St. Louis earlier this year. During that time, the delegates researched both the country of Pakistan and the issues that were being debated at the conference as well as learning parliamentary procedures under which the conference is conducted.
The keynote speaker at the conference was Dr. Esther Brimmer, assistant secretary of state for International Organizations Affairs at the State Department.
SWOSU delegates were successful in passing 11 of the resolutions they sponsored, and Caitlin Harrell was appointed to the MMUN staff for next year.
The SWOSU delegation was made up of the following students: William Blackwell, Kolby Bollinger, Alyssa Chapman, Caitlin Harwell, Fidelia Nkwain, Arpita Patel, Kajal Patel, Angela Reyes, Christopher Robinson, Courtni Tapper and Jessica Vigil.
Model United Nations class is held every spring semester at SWOSU, and enrollment is in progress now. Class begins the first week of September. For further information about the MUN class, please contact Ambassador Kenneth Tillett at 580-774-7134 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
