VCU Model UN members win awards at Model Arab League Conference

VCU Model UN students at the November 15-16 Model Arab League conference at Georgetown University. Representing Algeria and Mauritania, VCU Delegates participated in the Joint Defense, Palestinian, Political, Social, and Economic councils. Given a diverse perspective into the vast world of politics in the Arab League, these delegates worked with other universities to develop solutions to many contemporary issues in the Arab world. Three VCU delegates went home with Outstanding Delegate awards: Jeff Keezel, Mickey Weitzel, and Ibrahim Aly. Congratulations to all!
