International Relations Club Represents UA at National Collegiate Security Conference

Twelve students represented the University of Alabama and the Alabama International Relations Club (AIRC) at the National Collegiate Security Conference (NCSC) XLV, a collegiate Model United Nations conference, in Washington, D.C. in late October.  The conference was hosted by Georgetown University in Bethesda, Maryland and comprised nearly 600 students from universities across the U.S. and Canada.  The mission of the NCSC is to provide for its collegiate participants a professional and enjoyable experience through competitive diplomacy simulations that are interactive, demanding, and educational. Participants representing UA were: Ilham Ali, Evan Anderson, Christian Bender, Zach Boros, Whitney Cravens, Ryan Davey, Madalyn Frasier, Abigail Laurenson, Mason Johnston, Abigail Kappelman, Russell Puffer, and Sam Raburn.

Mason Johnston and Abigail Kappelman won a Verbal Commendation award for their work representing Yemen in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) committee as a double delegation.
