OGDEN, Utah – Utah Jazz CEO Randy Rigby will discuss “Ethics in Sports” at Weber State University, March 19 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Shepherd Union Ballroom A. His presentation is part of WSU’s annual Ethics Day, created by the Richard Richards Institute for Politics, Decency and Ethical Conduct.
Rigby serves as CEO of the Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment Group, and sits on the advisory board for the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. He is also a member of the NBA Team Advisory Committee.
“Randy fits the model we want to promote to our students,” said WSU athletics director Jerry Bovee. “It’s possible to run a franchise or organization while maintaining a sense of value and integrity and still be successful. He is a perfect example of a sports figure in the public eye who does it the right way. We are excited for him to share his experiences with us.”
The event is free and open to the public.
Later that evening, Garff Enterprises Chairman Robert H. Garff also provide the keynote address at the Ethics Scholarship Banquet from 6 to 8 p.m. in Shepherd Union Ballroom A.
