Durham Tech students excel at PBL conference

Durham Tech students Scott Wallace, Linda Johnson, Larry Novins, and Ben Foreman attended the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Nashville, June 24-27. Durham Tech advisors Charlene West and Michele Parrish also attended. The conference included a variety of competitions for students to showcase their business skills. Foreman took first place in the Help Desk competition; Wallace placed fourth in Computer Concepts; Novins came in seventh in Justice Administration. Congratulations! Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) is the largest and oldest student business organization. Conference participants gathered from across the United States and two countries to sharpen their core business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 55 business and business-related competitive events. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. In addition to the competitions, students immersed themselves in educational workshops, visited an information-packed exhibit hall, and attended motivational keynotes on a broad range of business topics.
