Sports Ethics Fellow Named

Friday, Oct. 8, 2010

Jack Penner, a sophomore Public Health major at SCU, has been awarded the Denise and John York/49ers Foundation Fellowship in Sports Ethics at the Ethics Center. 

As a fellow, Penner is working on the Center's upcoming conference, "Thinking Ethically About MRSA," a program on the virulent, antibiotic-resistant skin disease that has become a problem in sports because it is spread by skin-to-skin and skin-to-equipment contact.  The event, Oct. 14, is also supported by Denise and John York and the 49ers Foundation.

Penner is on the SCU Student Athletic Advisory Committee and is a member of the men's water polo team.
