April 2013

By Liz Warren-Pederson

In the wake of successful outreach programs in Phoenix and Los Angeles, Eller’s Center for Leadership Ethics (CLE) took its framework for ethics education to Irving, Texas, for a program aimed at gifted middle and high school students.

Attorney Frank Broyles, a UA alumnus, chaired the program. It was through his invitation that Paul Melendez, founder of CLE and EthicsPoint Senior Lecturer, got involved.

“At some point in time I read about Eller’s Center for Leadership Ethics and stored that information in my mind,” Broyles said. Asked by a bankruptcy section of the State Bar of Texas to make a presentation in China on a legal ethics article he had published in the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal, he contacted Melendez. “I actually attended one of his lectures to get a better understanding of his philosophies and used some of his information for my China presentation.”

Melendez invited Broyles to participate in judging the 2012 Collegiate Ethics Competition. “I found the experience, including the ropes challenge, fascinating and stimulating,” Broyles said. He also learned more about the High School Ethics Forum.

“I am on the board of directors of La Buena Vida Foundation, an Irving-based nonprofit dedicated to helping Irving students,” he said. He also serves as vice chair of the District Improvement Committee for Irving Independent School District. “The idea that Eller’s ethics outreach program might work here came naturally,” he said.
