On Saturday, February 3rd, Gerstell Academy's Speech and Debate Club won the Regional High School Ethics Bowl at the University of Baltimore. This is the second Regional victory in a row for Gerstell Academy. After months of case review and intense preparation, the Upper School students demonstrated their leadership and knowledge of ethics as they faced nine teams from five other schools. The team will compete in a virtual ethics bowl elimination round to qualify for the national competition in April. Mr. Dane Menges, Upper School Leadership Instructor, moderates the club and shares his love of speech and debate with his students.
