Business students place in multiple events at Phi Beta Lambda conference

The Campbell University Phi Beta Lambda chapter turned in an outstanding performance at the North Carolina Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference, held April 7-10,  at the Hilton University Place in Charlotte. Phi Beta Lambda is the collegiate arm of Future Business Leaders of America, a national membership organization dedicated to the development of students’ leadership, technical and business skills.

At the conference, members participated in leadership and career development workshops, elected their leaders for the next academic year, networked with members from across the state, and demonstrated their skills through competitive events. The events spanned a wide range of areas from accounting principles to website design.

The Campbell team made us proud with their performances:

  • Michael Glennon – fourth place in Sales Presentation and first place in Sports Management and Marketing
  • Gillian Kitchings – third place in Accounting Principles
  • Carter Lewis – third place in Impromptu Speaking and 1st place in Macroeconomics
  • Jennifer Piccione – first place in Project Management
  • Jennifer Piccione & Keton York – first place in Website Design
  • Carter Wray Simpson – third place in Information Management
  • Devin Wickerson – first place in Business Communication and 1st place in Human Resource Management
  • Amyah Wiley – fourth place in Information Management and fifth place in Marketing Concepts
  • Keton York – second place in Project Management

Additionally, the chapter itself was recognized with the Legacy Leadership Award and the Gold Star chapter award for its activities in the 2021-2022 academic year.

All of our competitors qualified to represent the North Carolina state chapter in the national competition being held at the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Chicago this Summer, and our very own Campbell University chapter president, Michael Glennon, won a free trip to the conference.

Dr. Edward Fubara, associate professor and associate dean for academic affairs and faculty director of Phi Beta Lambda, congratulated Glennon, saying, “What a fitting honor given the work he has done over the last two years to rebuild and lead the chapter. Kudos to him as he wraps up his collegiate career and makes his way out into the ‘real world.’ We trust that his PBL experience has helped prepare him for the challenges ahead.”
