A team from John Carroll University’s Model Arab League (MAL) Club travelled to the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio, on February 20-22 and participated in the Ohio Valley Regional MAL. The students represented the Country of Saudi Arabia in five different councils. They had been meeting with their advisor Professor Mona K. DeBaz and preparing for this simulation since the fall semester. The students all performed an exceptional job representing their country at the conference.
The team as a whole won an outstanding delegation award, and several of the students won both outstanding delegate and honorable mention awards. The team consisted of the following students: Jessica Bou-Anak, Rita Boutros, Shamir Brice, Patrick Bucyana, Abdellatif El-Ashram, Megan Hobart, Dani Milan, Alexis Mittereder, Diana Naoum, and Aidan Pogodzinski. Congratulations to all of them!
