High School Leadership Ethics Class a Huge Success
High School Leadership students participate in Tuesday's annual Ethics Decisionmaking Seminar.
I would like to thank Craig Roberts, Guaranty Bond Bank, for leading the High School Leadership Class on Ethics in the Workplace. The students were given many ethical dilemmas that they might face in the business world and Craig, along with the table leaders helped the students to make wise decisions. At the end of the day, the table leaders presented an ethical dilemma from their career field and the students had to determine what they would do in that situation. I would also like to thank the table leaders for their leadership: Roberta Vanderburg, Hospice at Memorial; Brandon Williams, Legacy Ag Credit; Pam Sellers; Tod & Leah Conner, Trinity Clinic; and Jake Caddell, Alliance Bank.
