Morgan State Wins Honda Campus All-Star National Championship
Who was America’s only chief executive never elected as president or vice president?
Offering the correct answer of Gerald Ford, Morgan State University captured the 23rd Annual Honda Campus All-Star Challenge in Los Angeles, besting 48 teams from historically black colleges and universities around the country. It is the first title for the Bears in the annual academic quiz challenge, and brings Morgan the grand prize of $50,000 in institutional grants.
“This is everybody’s first year on the team, and to try to figure out how to meld what they know with what they need to know, takes a journey that builds a relationship of trust. It’s been a beautiful relationship with my team,” said Dr. OluwaTosin Adegbola, coach of the Morgan HCASC Team.
Morgan defeated Oakwood University in the final round, and outlasted Florida A&M University and Morehouse College in the final four. The MSU team was comprised of Craig Cornish (Captain), junior, History Major; Micheal Osikomaiya, sophomore, English Major; John-Paul Stephens, freshman, Screen Writing & Animation Major; and James Hayes-Barber, freshman, Electrical Engineering Major.
