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 Alan Branham, a philosophy major from Salyersville; Casey Huffman, a psychology major from Walton, W.Va.; Zachary Morrison, a philosophy major from Paris; Cory Nolan, a broadcasting and electronic media and philosophy major from Clay City; and Micah Wyatt, 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.
