Marist Wins 2014 Northeast Regional Ethics Competition

This past Saturday, December 6th, twelve Marist students went to Sacred Heart University to compete in the Northeast Regional Ethics Competition.

The competition consisted of schools all around the Northeast totaling in twenty teams. Marist had two teams, one with five students, and one with seven.

Under Dr. Joanne Gavin, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Programs and Professor of Management, Marist’s two teams placed in fifth and first place. After coming in third place last year, it meant a lot to the team to come in first place this time.

“It feels really good to win after putting so much time and effort into it. Ryan Ellman did a great job securing the win for Marist again” said Taber Rueter, who was on the team that came in fifth. “All semester we have been preparing for it and the night before we were all together going over everything to make sure we were ready and our minds were clear” he added.
