The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College chapter of the business organization Phi Beta Lambda travelled to the Oklahoma Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City in March. Twenty-two NEO PBL students competed at the event, and 14 students qualified for the National Leadership Conference this June in Chicago, Illinois.

“Our Phi Beta Lambda members worked hard with Business and Technology faculty preparing to compete at the State Leadership Conference,” said Lori Hackwell, Business and Technology instructor and PBL advisor. “We are very proud of our students who qualified for nationals.”

NEO earned seven first-place finishes, seven second-place finishes and 10 third-place finishes. Along with the individual awards, NEO was also honored for the highest percentage increase in membership, highest increase in numbers, and advisor of the year.

“I am very proud of the PBL students and the results at the state conference,” said NEO PBL President, Dayton Fields. “Everyone put in lots of time and effort into their events, which led to several awards throughout the conference. A big thank you to the advisors for helping us succeed at the state level.”

Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) is one of the top 10 organizations listed by the U.S. Department of Education, and it is the largest career student organization in the world. PBL is the collegiate division of the FBLA-PBL.
