The NASBA Center for the PublicTrust launched its second Student Center for the PublicTrust (SCPT) chapter in Birmingham, Alabama, on November 4, 2010. More than 55 students participated in an interactive leadership presentation made by Alfonzo Alexander, Chief Relationship Officer for NASBA, at Birmingham-Southern College (BSC).

The SCPT Chapter at Birmingham- Southern College provides a unique forum for ethics education and an environment for enhancing leadership and professional development skills among its student members. The SCPT also offers a connection between students and professionals that provides students with real-life experience for their transition to the corporate world.

“The enthusiasm about the new chapter at BSC is very exciting,” said Chapter President Clay Malcolm. “Students realize the value of belonging to an organization like this, both in the insight and ethical perspective that they will gain through our activities and also the statement that it makes to potential employers. I think that active membership in an ethics club like ours can speak volumes as an affirmation of a student’s good character.”

The BSC chapter is lead by Malcolm, along with executive officers David Kelley, Lex Gilmore and Lindsay Brigham.The chapter’s advisor, Sara Robicheaux, is the Associate Professor of Finance at BSC and an alumnus of the college.The chapter will host three more membership meetings during this academic year, as well as participate in the national Center for PublicTrust video competition that will take place in the spring of 2011. Birmingham-Southern College is a four-year, private liberal arts institution founded in 1856 and offers five bachelor’s degrees in more than 50 programs of study. This fall, BSC enrolled 1,521 students from 32 states and 15 foreign countries, the largest traditional undergraduate enrollment in Birmingham-Southern’s history.
