EKU Team Finishes 10th out of 22 Teams at Regional Ethics Bowl
Competing in the Central States Regional Ethics Bowl in Indianapolis for the first time on Saturday, Nov. 12, a newly formed student team from Eastern Kentucky University finished 10th among 22 teams from 19 schools.
EKU posted a higher score than teams from the University of Kentucky, Northern Kentucky University, University of Michigan and Indiana State University, among others. The champion was Indiana University, a first-round opponent for EKU. The top five schools at the regional bowl qualified for the National Ethics Bowl in March in Cincinnati.
Members of the EKU team are (as pictured above): Alan Branham (front left), a philosophy major from Salyersville; Casey Huffman (front middle), a psychology major from Walton, W.Va.; Zachary Morrison (front right), a philosophy major from Paris; Cory Nolan (back right), a broadcasting and electronic media and philosophy major from Clay City; and Micah Wyatt (backleft), a philosophy major from Livingston.
EKU’s Department of Philosophy and Religion sponsored the team. The Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, sponsored by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, is a two-tiered team competition that combines the fun of a tournament with an innovative approach to ethics education for undergraduate students.
Here's the team, preparing to lay down the moral law. From left to right: Casey Huffman, Alan Branham, Micah Wyatt, Zac Morrison, and Cory Nolan.
