The McMurry University Model UN team won recognition in this year’s 2015 National Model United Nations Conference- Europe held in Olomouc, Czech Republic. Senior political science majors Mathew Brown, Douglas Alldredge, junior political science majors “Charles” Hunter Ward and Tereza Sliter, and junior physics and mathematics major Kirk Hodel represented McMurry as the delegation of Nigeria at the conference.

“The hard work these students put in paid off as McMurry University was rewarded for an outstanding show at this year's conference by being recognized with an “Honorable Mention” performance,” said faculty advisor Dr. Joel Olufowote, political science professor at McMurry. “Doug Alldredge and Matthew Brown were four for four, Kirk Hodel was three for three, and Tereza Sliter was two for two in securing recognition from the conference organizers through position paper and delegation awards over the last four years, a distinction less than 20% of the universities participating receive.”
