Librarian Diana Amerson Remains a Vital Asset to FSU Model UN Delegates, Students Win 8 of 11 Awards at 26th Conference (3.31.2015)

Last Thursday, March 19th, it was crunch time. Six students sat scattered in a dimly-lit auditorium-style classroom in Taylor Science. We sat in the front row observing the Model United Nations Vice President, De’Vonicia Mickens, presiding over the meeting. She was addressing the participants, though this wasn’t the entire team.

The abbreviated team of students met to make final hour preparations and plans with faculty advisors Diana Amerson (Librarian, Bibliographic Instruction), Wesley Fountain (Government and Community Affairs), and Dr. Jilly M. Ngwainmbi (Department of Sociology).  Students were being shifted and moved around: who would serve on what committee, who would serve as a moderator, who was assigned to which country.

Questions were asked, clarifications given. Mrs. Amerson stood at the classroom podium, navigating the LibGuide that she created and continuously curates for the North Carolina Consortium for International and Intercultural Education (NCCIIE) Model United Nations Conference. She reminded students how to access key information and resources that would be beneficial during their sessions and resolution-writing.

The NCCIIE Model UN Conference hosted its 26th cohort March 26th-28th, 2015 at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in Fayetteville, NC. Fayetteville State University was the host institution; Chancellor Anderson served as the keynote speaker to the Assembly Delegates.

With the ongoing guidance of Mrs. Amerson and faculty advisors, FSU’s student delegates surpassed their competitors, winning 8 of 11 awards. Below you will find a list of FSU award recipients:

Best Overall Delegate Brandon Sawyer
Best Overall Delegation Marcus Ellerbe & Brittney Koonce
Best Overall Leadership Marcus Ellerbe
Best Delegate Security Council Keorie McMillan
Best Delegate Committee One Brandon Cropper
Best Delegate Honorable Mention Committee One Octavis Harper
Best Delegate Committee Three Terronne Cuthrell
