|Another speaker at Leadership & Ethics Day|
Photo compliments of Rockhurst University.
The second speaker in my classes that afternoon came to us by speakerphone from Baltimore, MD. This man, Jeff Goering, is the Chief Financial Officer for the Baltimore Ravens and is an alumni of Rockhurst. His journey to become the CFO was quite varied and it was interesting to see how each step in his career, while it didn't always seem that way, would lead him toward his current job. He spoke about ethical situations in which he had to make decisions on behalf of the stadium and how his education helped support his decision.
Each time speakers come in to speak on these type of issues, it gives the students the opportunity to hear how our liberal arts education will be applied following graduation. These type of talks, while varied in exact story, can be inspiring for students to keep pushing through in order to finish out the year and continue to work toward the career of their dreams.
