Williams Students Honored for Their Ethical Values

On Wednesday, May 1, Katie Burzin '20, Madi Pralea '20, Eli Bunnell '20, and Colin Ladd '19 were honored at the School for Ethical Education’s annual Character Celebration Dinner. 
The School for Ethical Education (SEE) recognizes the need for an increased focus on ethical behavior in all human interactions. Through character traits of fairness, respect, responsibility, caring, justice, honesty, courtesy, citizenship, and the principles of the Golden Rule, SEE provides opportunities for educators and students to promote and explore its motto: Ethics in action creates character.

The Academic Integrity PSA Video contest sought to increase student awareness and commitment to academic integrity. Katie, Madi, and Eli comprised one of four groups chosen out of hundreds of videos submitted Connecticut high school students. You can view the winning PSAs on YouTube.

The Laws of Life Essay Program is an essay writing contest that asks students to reflect on ethical values and articulate their belief system and moral compass. Colin’s piece was one of ten essays selected out of over 3000 entries from middle school and high school students in Connecticut.  You may read the winning essays here.
