Model UN Fundraising Dinner Planned at SWOSU


A fundraising dinner for the Model United Nations program at Southwestern Oklahoma State University will be held this Thursday, February 10, on the Weatherford campus.

Sixteen SWOSU students are raising money to help pay for expenses to the Model UN convention in St. Louis, Mo., later this month.

The dinner is at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom. Guest speakers for the event will be former ambassador and current Social Sciences Department instructor Ken Tillett, SWOSU student and head UN delegate Curtis Rose and SWOSU President John Hays.

Sara Puett, SWOSU senior from Cherokee and a member of the SWOSU delegation to the Model UN, said all donations are welcome. Cost for the dinner is $25, which covers dinner plus a donation. Cost for SWOSU students and employees is $15. Tables of eight can be reserved for $200.

“The SWOSU students are excited about the upcoming Model UN trip, but we need donations to help defray expenses,” Puett said. “Any donation amount is welcome.”
