OC Wins State, Regional Ethics Championships

OC’s ethics team won its third straight state championship and first regional crown, then went 2-1 at the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, defeating Clemson University and the University of Michigan.

Sponsored by Dr. Jeff Simmons (91), interim dean of OC’s College of Business Administration, OC’s team at the national contest featured Megan McKinley, a freshman political science major, Chas Carter, a senior English/pre-law major, and Sean vanDyke, a freshman computer engineering major.

Jasper Bawcom, a senior majoring in teaching English as a foreign language, and Gabriel Gasiorowski, a sophomore mechanical engineering major, were on OC’s state and regional championship squads. 

OC placed ahead of the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University at the state and regional contests.

“I am extremely proud of OC’s teams,” Simmons said. “To win the state tournament is very good. But to have both of our teams place at regionals and qualify for the national tournament is just outstanding. When one considers that these students represent our future, one can rest assured that our world is in good hands.”
