Montgomery College-Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus Ethics Team Wins Second Straight Maryland Community College Ethics Bowl
Montgomery College’s Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus ethics debate team won first place in the 8th Annual Maryland Community College Ethics Bowl held on April 16, 2011 at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. This is the first time in the history of the competition that a team has successfully defended its championship. The Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus debaters also earned first place in 2010.
Sponsored by the Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics at the University of Baltimore, the competition brought together teams from 10 competing colleges, including Anne Arundel Community College, Baltimore City Community College, Carroll Community College, the Community College of Baltimore County, Howard Community College, and Montgomery College-Rockville. The Ethics Bowl is a debate on issues in applied ethics.
“The competition provided a wonderful learning opportunity for our students at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus,” said Professor Daniel Jenkins, coach of the team. “It was an honor for the campus to host so many philosophy students and faculty from across the region, and it was rewarding to see our students take home the state championship trophy the second year in a row.”
The winning team consisted of Montgomery College students Harold Levy, Miguel Resendiz, Martin Seitz, Maraki Shimelis and Daniel Sekou Williams.
