February 7, 2023 – Congratulations to the Santa Fe College-sponsored High School Ethics Bowl Team, the Moral Mustards, who competed last weekend at the First Coast High School Ethics Bowl, hosted by the University of North Florida. Attending this year’s competition were team members Maya Rose Allen, Rohan Caballero, James Frank, Sawyer Franklin, Max Kaplan, Xavier Provost, and Luke Singleton. Going up against some tough teams, including Kant’s Kats, Kant Touch This, Bartram, and Plato’s Panthers, the Moral Mustards finished the day with two solid wins and two close losses. Exhibiting great teamwork, poise, professionalism and a high degree of collegiality in each of their rounds, the team truly exemplified the spirit of Ethics Bowl.
Under the guidance of team coaches Dr. Ann Thebaut, Dr. Li Ren-Kaplan, and Dr. Jason Frank, these high school students have been meeting on the Northwest Campus every Sunday morning since early September, engaging in critical thought and conversation with one another about some tough ethical issues.
The mission of the National High School Ethics Bowl is to promote respectful, supportive, and in-depth discussion of ethics among high school students nationwide. Ethics Bowl fosters constructive dialogue and furthers the next generation’s ability to make sound ethical decisions. The High School Ethics Bowl program at Santa Fe College has been supported by a National Endowment for the Humanities Community College Initiatives Grant and by SF’s Center for Applied Ethics and Humanities.
