The dictionary offers a long definition of the word ethical, which I won't bore you with, but most of us understand being ethical as simply doing the right thing

Much has been made over the past year about ethics in business, and with good reason.   We have identified many of the people who have acted unethically… who have contributed to our current financial and business problems, and we are making corrections… to some degree. 

But we should also recognize those who have acted and continue to act ethically in business, as it relates to the workplace, the marketplace, the environment and the community. 

The Samaritan Counseling Center of Montgomery, like many of its sister centers across the country, is conducting the River Region Ethics in Business and Public Service Awards to do just that. 

Nominations are being taken from the public and we urge you to participate.  Go to wsfa.com's community page to make your nomination.  

We commend the Samaritan Counseling Center for this effort to promote ethical behavior and to make examples of those who do the right thing
