Class Act

In a world arguably devoid of class and dignity, there is a glimmer of hope. I read a short blurb in Saturday’s edition of the St. Pete Times that impresses me no end. A high school basketball team in Eugene, Oregon had lost one of its players when he was swept out to sea with another teenager. When the team took the floor for the first time after his death, the coach only put four players in the lineup against five on the other team during the first possession of the game. Even more impressive was the fact that 2,500 fans in the stands were wearing the young man’s number 35 jersey. These symbolic gestures transcend sports and can serve as a reminder about how we should conduct ourselves in business and life in general.
