Model Arab League receives two awards at conference

Congratulations MAL!!!

The Georgia Southern University Model Arab League (MAL) received two awards in its inaugural appearance at the National University Model Arab League (NUMAL) conference held via Zoom from March 26 – 28. The delegation, made up of 11 Georgia Southern students and their faculty advisers, Jacek Lubecki and Youssef Salhi, represented the Sultanate of Oman. Georgia Southern delegates served in six councils: Environmental Affairs, Political Affairs, Economic Affairs, Joint Defense, and the Summit of Arab Heads of State. Georgia Southern head delegate, Emily Zanieski, earned a Distinguished Delegation Award for her work in the Summit of Arab Heads of State. Students Claudia Hopper and Adam Sikes earned an Outstanding Delegation Award for their work in the Economic Affairs Committee.

Model Arab League is a simulation event that allows students to represent diplomats from 22 Arab countries that are members of the Arab League. Students come out of MAL having improved their public speaking, writing, and diplomatic skills. The Georgia Southern MAL team will be competing in Fall 2022 in the Appalachia Regional MAL conference. MAL is open to any Georgia Southern student.

Way to go team!
