Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) recently excelled in the state competition. This year’s competition took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma at Tulsa Community College. PBL members earned their winnings based on excellent business knowledge, ideas, professionalism and leadership skills. PBL is a national business fraternity which strives to promote business and the free enterprise system. The organization also provides opportunities for state and national competitions in business related areas. This is the college level of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). NEO’s PBL sponsor is Brenda Lucas. “I am very proud of our students and our department,” Lucas said. “We placed in 12 of the 15 competitions we entered. This shows the dedication of our students and the quality of learning in the business and technology department.”
This competition is an opportunity for students from two and four-year colleges and universities across the State of Oklahoma to showcase their business understanding and skills. Students who place first, second or third at the state level qualify for the PBL national competition this summer in Chicago.
