Fisher Student Wins Scholarship at Rochester Business Ethics Awards
The 9th Annual Rochester Business Ethics Awards were held on Tuesday, September 20, and St. John Fisher College student Michael Bohling received a $5,000 ethics scholarship from the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation (RABEF). The luncheon took place at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
Scholarship recipients are recognized for their high ethical standards. Bohling is a management major, a first generation scholar, and a member of the Class of 2014. Last year, he served as the class president.
As part of his remarks, Bohling said, “It does not matter if you are an employee of a Fortune 500 company, a small business owner, an entrepreneur, or a broke college kid – if you keep your personal values in mind in the course of your everyday life, and incorporate moral compassion into your actions, you can set the bar high for yourself as well as those around you.”
“As we grow, it is the hope of Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation to award a scholarship to students at all of the business schools in the Rochester area,” said RABEF president Alan Ziegler. “We’re proud of these young people today and look forward to hearing about their accomplishments tomorrow.”
The Rochester Business Ethics Awards are sponsored and organized by the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation, a 501(c) (3) charitable foundation. St. John Fisher College is an organizational partner. The awards program was established in 1994 by the National Society of Financial Service Professionals. The Rochester awards and scholarships were initiated in 2003.
