The Auburn Model United Nations team recently competed in the Southern Regional Model United Nations, or SRMUN, conference, which was held virtually this year.

The team won several awards for both individual and group performance, including individual Best Delegate awards for Andy Bowling, Joanne Kim and Coleman Mantell; Best Position Paper award for Cas Rehage; and for the first time ever, the Outstanding Delegation award which is the highest of three tiers of recognition at SRMUN.

The Auburn team represented the nation of Germany on several different simulated UN committees, including the Security Council, General Assembly Plenary and Council on the Status of Women among others. The delegation included old and new members, including Cas Rehage, Megan Atkins, Luke Owens, Elizabeth Eberwine, Andy Bowling, Coleman Mantell and Joanne Kim.

Matthew Clary, the team’s faculty adviser and political science lecturer, was elected as a faculty representative to the SRMUN Inc. Board of Directors and will serve as the board’s secretary for next year.
