Ethics Author Goree Receives Award
The Balance Sheet is proud to announce that Dr. Keith Goree
was the recipient of the 2005 William H. Meardy Faculty Member Award.
Nominated by the Provost's council at St. Petersburg College and
then approved by the Board of Trustees, he was on his way to becoming
one of five regional finalists.
Regional finalists were flown to Seattle in early September for
the ACCT Annual Meeting, and the Award was announced at a gala banquet.
Each Regional winner was recognized before Dr. Goree's name was
called as the national recipient. Keith said, "I don't remember

While at St. Petersburg College, Dr. Goree has worked on a variety
of professional experiences: written books and articles, worked
with the Justice Department on their national law enforcement curriculum,
worked with his school system on character education issues, conducted
workshops, and presented at conferences. Certainly the breadth of
those experiences led to his selection for the award. While a result
of his hard work, it is also a testament to the College and the
Applied Ethics Program at St. Petersburg College.
Congratulations from everyone on The Balance Sheet Staff, Keith!
