Spiritual Emphasis Days

Spiritual Emphasis days took place on January 19th and 20th. Students participated in an “Ethics Bowl”. The ethics bowl started out with 12 teams that were given ethical dilemma scenarios. The teams were narrowed down to the final two through debates that were judged by Mr. Goasdone, Mr. Pruner, Mrs. Fraley-Hogg and Dr. Sheard. Throughout the thought provoking debates, points were well thought out and reasonably expressed. Overall the ethics bowl created a space for students to discuss relevant topics and share their ideas.
