Reinhardt University Invites Community to Ethics Lecture on Thursday, Nov. 5
|Reinhardt alumnus Rod Norton ’14 will speak on developing a personal code of ethics on Nov. 5 at 2 p.m.|
Reinhardt University welcomes Rod Norton, a 2014 MBA graduate from Reinhardt’s McCamish School of Business, as a speaker for the McCamish School/Knox Foundation for Ethics-sponsored lecture series. This free event is open to the public and will be held Thursday, Nov. 5, at 2 p.m. in the Bannister Glasshouse/Hasty Student Life Center on Reinhardt’s Waleska, Ga. campus.
Developing a personal code of ethics
Dr. Katherine E. Hyatt, associate professor of business, has coordinated Reinhardt’s ethics activities in recent years. She invited Norton to speak because she was impressed by a memorable ethics presentation he gave during his MBA coursework. His speech will address how to use one’s personal experiences, relationships and society in building a personal code of ethics.
Norton’s undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership and Management, is also from Reinhardt. He has more than 16 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, having spent 10 years with a major wireless carrier and six years as a consultant and executive providing strategic services and network infrastructure to major wireless carriers. Before working in telecommunications, Norton worked in real estate construction and residential and commercial project development. He was site manager for the inaugural beach volleyball venue at the 1996 Olympic Games held in Atlanta.
The Knox Foundation for Ethics promotes ethics education at Reinhardt
The Knox Foundation was established by longtime Reinhardt trustee and friend, the late Pete Knox of Thomson, Ga., to promote ethics education. His son, the late Boone A. Knox, continued to support the Foundation’s efforts after his father’s death and throughout his own life. In recent years, Reinhardt has hosted panel discussions and essay contents, in addition to lectures, to examine ethics.
