The Knox Foundation for Ethics and Reinhardt University McCamish School of Business Host Interactive Ethics Panel on Thursday, March 1, 2012, at 2 p.m.
The Knox Foundation for Ethics and the Reinhardt University McCamish School of Business will host an interactive ethics panel on Thursday, March 1, at 2 p.m., in the Hill Freeman Library & Spruill Learning Center on Reinhardt’s campus in Waleska, Ga. The panel will discuss their experiences of ethics in business and then audience members will have an open floor to ask questions.
“Ethics is a topic increasing in interest and is vitally important in today's environment,” said Dr. Kathy Hyatt, assistant professor of business. “We are very excited about the opportunity to host an interactive ethics panel at Reinhardt University. We encourage everyone to attend!”
Three Reinhardt Ambassadors were selected to participate in the panel: The Rev. Dr. Brian Clark, of Calhoun, Ga.; John Hicks, of Canton, Ga.; and Alan King, of Kennesaw, Ga.
“These three individuals were chosen as panel members because they have close ties with Reinhardt as Ambassadors and because of their extensive business experience and background in instituting ethical standards in their business practices,” said Hyatt. “We look forward to hearing about this and how our students can do the same now and in their own future careers.”
Clark serves as the Senior Pastor of Calhoun First United Methodist Church. He graduated from Reinhardt University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
