State of NJ Honors Kent Place Ethics Bowl Team

This resolution was in response to Kent Place's Ethics Bowl Team's National Championship win in North Carolina in April. Senator Kean presented each member of the team with a signed copy of the resolution.

The resolution stated, “[t]he Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey are pleased to honor and congratulate the Kent Place Ethics Bowl Team for its remarkable accomplishments as the 2018 National Ethics Bowl Champion.” The resolution concludes by stating that “this Legislature hereby salutes and congratulates the Kent Place School Ethics Bowl Team as the 2018 National Ethics Bowl Champions, and commends the team’s members and coach for their exceptional diligence and competitive spirit as evidenced by their accomplishments."

"It was such an honor to have Senator Kean come to Kent Place to present the team with the Joint Resolution from the NJ State Legislature," said Dr. Karen Rezach, Director of the Ethics Institute at Kent Place School. "To earn the recognition of our state is truly humbling and very much appreciated by the team. The students worked so hard to earn the National Championship, and this recognition truly makes it all-the-more special!"

"Being recognized by the State Senate for our victory was truly an amazing moment; it was another validation of the hard work and dedication we put into preparing for the National High School Ethics Bowl," added Kent Place senior and Ethics Bowl Team member Sofia Kwon. "I thought it was especially great to see that the State Senate finds ethical thinking and decision-making so valuable to be worthy of such recognition. I love working and competing on the Ethics Bowl Team, and it really is inspiring to see our team and our work honored in this way."

As a first-of-its-kind Institute at the primary and secondary school levels, EIKPS promotes the process and practice of ethical thinking and ethical decision making to prepare students to be compassionate citizens and the most effective leaders of tomorrow.
