Introducing NHSEB’s First Student Advisory Council

November 14, 2022


The Director and Executive Committee of the National High School Ethics Bowl are proud to announce the program’s inaugural Student Advisory Council. These four students were selected for appointment from among a field of over 50 excellent applications, and each will serve a one year term, through July 31, 2023. 


Of the appointments, NHSEB Director Alex Richardson said: “Our team sifted through a ton of truly impressive resumés, but these students really stood out for their dedication to the Ethics Bowl activity, their schools, and their surrounding communities. I speak for all of us when I say that look forward to working with them to make our activity all it can be.”
