Lynda Jentsch of our Department of World Languages and Cultures reports that Samford's eight-member Model United Nations team did itself proud this past week at the National Model UN Conference-Europe in Olomouc, Czech Republic. Students representing Ireland, Devon Arnold, Andrew Mays, and Clay Menefee, took Honorable Mention, while those representing Slovenia, Kathleen Artman (Head Delegate), Martin Bunt, Jayme Cloninger (who also presented for the UNESCO Committee), Thomas Espy, and Hillary Sawyer garnered a Distinguished Delegation award. The team's sponsor, trainer, and trip organizer, Dr. Andrew Konitzer, called this "the best team we've had yet." Teams competed previously in China, Ecuador, Serbia, and New York City, with another New York conference coming up in the spring.
The world is better because Samford students are in the world.
