High School Students Take Part in Ethics Day

Posted:

Two hundred high school students from Bismarck/Mandan and the surrounding area are at the Career Academy for Ethics Day.

It's an annual event put on by the Bismarck/Mandan Chamber of Commerce.

Juniors and Seniors are presented with three ethical dilemmas.

Each table discusses and shares their opinions on how they think each situation should be handled.

"To come together as a group to expose students to other students and with like-minded opinions or opposing opinions. To be able to get a better understanding of how people think and how important it is to really do some soul searching when you are exposed to and required to make some very important decisions," says Chris Heringer, Co-Chair of Ethics Day (DSU).

The topics discussed are those that students have either dealt with or will encounter in the future.

Along with the ethical dilemmas, they will hear from speakers, have break out sessions, and ice breakers as a way to get to know others.

"I think one thing that I really enjoy most about it is not only learning what I'm learning but being able to hear other people's perspectives as well as give mine," says Noah Germolus, Century High School Student Chamber.

Each table has a leader who is a business professional.

They help engage the students and also provide networking opportunities.
