Stuckey Is A Member Of Winning Ethics Bowl Team
Levi Stuckey, AHS ‘07, son of Brian and Lori Aeschliman, is a member of the Taylor University Ethics Bowl team that captured the Central States Ethics Bowl regional championship earlier this month.
Located in Upland, Ind., TU sent two teams to the competition, placing first and fourth. Both qualified for the national championship.
Twenty teams from 14 colleges and universities debated topics ranging from National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations and Facebook policies to the use of coal power in developing nations.
Participants were given 14 possible topics beforehand to allow them to prepare thoughtful presentations and meaningful rebuttals to opposing viewpoints.
The TU teams competed against squads from Valparaiso, Butler, Xavier, Marian, DePauw and Indiana universities, posting a combined record of 4-1-1.
Judging is based on the quality of debate and presentation in the following criteria:
•clarity and intelligibility •focus on ethically relevant factors
•avoidance of ethical irrelevance
It marks the fifth time in 10 years a TU Ethics Bowl team will advance to the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, which will be held in the spring in Cincinnati.
