BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Florida Tech thanked the Cavallucci-Strouse Family Endowment for Ethics and Leadership and Community Credit Union for their sponsorship as several local high schools participated in the 24th Annual High School Business Ethics Competition.
Organized by the Bisk College of Business, this competition is intended to celebrate and instill an appreciation for the value of ethics in business practices. Student teams of three or four competed for a cash prize and significant scholarships should they pursue business degrees at Florida Tech.
A key program for the Bisk College of Business Center for Ethics and Leadership is to demonstrate community involvement in ethical decision-making.
Theodore Richardson, Dean of the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business at Florida Tech, said that as a result of the Gene Cavallucci Ethics Fund, Community Credit Union, and Florida Tech, the Bisk College of Business conducts a high school ethics competition that we hope provides high school students education with respect to the boundaries of wealth creation in business.
“The college also hopes that local students decide to make Florida Tech their home for higher education. I congratulate the teams from Rockledge, Viera, and Astronaut High for their dedication to ethical decision-making,” said Richardson.
Gene Cavallucci, who established the endowment supporting this event and other ethics programs, including the annual ethics conference, served in several leadership roles for L3Harris.
These included the Vice President and Legal Counsel, Director of Business Conduct; and General Counsel. In 2010, he retired after 20 years of service to this Fortune 500 public company.
Mr. Cavallucci also participated in the event firsthand.
He said, “I have enjoyed being a judge in support of the High School Ethics Competition because it supports an important mission of the College of Business: supporting ethical business decision-making. Judging also provides an opportunity to engage with very intelligent and motivated high school students.”
The winning team of the 24th Ethics Competition was Rockledge High School, with four students coached by a Florida Tech graduate.
Their win earned each of them a $12,000 per year scholarship if they attend Florida Tech and an additional $4,000 if they attend the Bisk College of Business.
