Bluefield State College students earned eleven 1st Place awards during the recent Phi Beta Lambda state competition in Charleston. Phi Beta Lambda is an extension of the secondary schools organization "Future Business Leaders of America," and is involved in promoting the personal and professional growth of its members.
BSC winners included Jennifer Anderson (Accounting I), Johanna Sabo (Business Communications and Machine Transcription), Amy Kidd (Business Principles), Melanie Moure (Economics), Steve Tibbs (Finance and Impromptu Speaking), Mike Christian (Management and Marketing), Sherrie Rose (Public Speaking), and Katie Kidd (Telecommunications).
Cynthia Higgins, Jeremiah Gibson, Kidd, Moure, Stephanie Adams, Josh Gibson, Rose, and Sabrina Dillon were second-place finishers at the state competition, and Chris Flynt finished third.
Sherrie Rose of BSC was also elected State Phi Beta Lambda vice president.
"Our students performed very well at the state level," BSC PBL co-advisor Dr. Deb Halsey-Hunter noted. "We are now beginning plans for raising funds so our state-level student winners can travel to Anaheim (July 5-11) to complete in the National Leadership Conference."
