Westminster SIFE Team Wins "Duel in Appalachia"

The Westminster College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team took first place at the "Duel in Appalachia" held at Marshall College Saturday, Nov. 6.

 "All teams were given the same hypothetical case on personal finance," said Lauren Scheller a junior business administration major from Orlando, Fla., and team member.  "The case was about a family where the father had just died and the mother of one child and one on the way needed to change her financial plans to live within a new income."

 "Each team presented recommendations about the case, and are under a time deadline to "make their case,'" said Tom Rosengarth, chair of the Department of Economics and Business and adviser to the Westminster SIFE team.

 "We researched and then presented what we thought was the best solution," said Lindsay Lutes, a junior mathematics major from Grove City and team member.  "We won first place."

 Westminster competed against Morehead State University, the University of Kentucky, the University of Rio Grande, and Glenville State College, for the regional championship.

 "Our win entitles us to go to Tuscon, Arizona, to compete in the national competition, "Duel in the Desert.'" said Sybil Feightner, a senior accounting major from Twinsburg, Ohio and team member.  "We will play against 17 teams in March at the University of Arizona."

British Film Featured at Westminster's International Film Series

The Jake Erhardt International Film Series concludes with the British film, "Ladies in Lavender," Tuesday, May 2, at 7 p.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater located in the McKelvey Campus Center.

"This film, based on a short story by William J. Locke, stars Judi Drench and Maggie Smith as two sisters living in Cornwell in the 1930s," said Dr. Deborah Mitchell, associate professor of English and public relations at Westminster.  "The sisters find a stranger washed up on shore and nurse him back to health." 

The International Film Series is named in honor of its founder, Dr. Jacob Erhardt, professor emeritus of German at Westminster College.  Erhardt, who taught at Westminster from 1968 until his retirement in 2004, served as chair of his department from 1970-1986, was named the Language Educator of the Year by the Pennsylvania State Modern Languages Association, translated into English Robert Reitzel's Adventures of a Greenhorn, and was recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities as an outstanding member.

The event, which is the final movie in a ten-film series, is free and open to the public.
