Several business and information technology students at Northeast Community College, including Hunter Bergman of Neligh, have qualified for the National Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) Conference this summer after qualifying at the state level recently.
“Our competitors, who placed at the top of their respective categories, will be moving on to the National Leadership Conference in San Antonio this June,” said Angie Shaffer, business instructor, and Northeast PBL Club advisor.
The Northeast team competed against the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska-Omaha, Midland University, Chadron State College, Peru State College, York College, Doane University, McCook Community College, North Platte Community College and Southeast Community College.
“PBL places an emphasis on helping students transition to the business world,” Shaffer said. “There are approximately 11,000 PBL members on college campuses across the country.
Students placing first and second at the conference automatically qualify to compete at PBL’s National Leadership Conference, June 24-27, in San Antonio, TX.
