"In the trenches with Jim Priest"

Peter Dobelbower of Hobby Lobby was OK Ethics first speaker, addressing a crowd of HR professionals at a Metro Employers Council on September 16, 2003.  This program launched the idea of a group dedicated to reinforcing Oklahoma values of integrity at work.  He is seen here in a fun interview with one of OK Ethics founding members, attorney Jim Priest, who donned the attire of an embedded reporter for the event.  

Shannon Hiebert with Enterprise Rent-A-Car was the first to respond to the call for an organization dedicated to promoting ethical behavior in the workplace.

Dr. Dave Carmichael has retired from OCU Meinders School of Business, but his efforts continue forward with the development of many student chapters on various campuses.  Pictured here with field reporter, "Scoop" Priest and film crew from ReelCast.  

Heidi Rambo Centrella was the first to report the story of OK Ethics development back in early 2004.  At that time, we had about 75 members.  At the anniversary event, the organization had grown to over 600 members representing more than 90 companies.

Cheryl Doellefeld-Barth facilitated the first strategic planning session in OKC on October 23, 2003.
