July 22, 2016
Four of the School’s undergraduate students placed in the top-10 among 1,700 of America’s best and brightest college students in a national competition for more than $92,000 in cash awards. The students participated in the Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) National Leadership Conference June 24–27 in Atlanta, where they also connected with top future business leaders and showcased their talents.
The School’s Sharod Hinton, Ben Genereaux, Luis Goberna, and Stephanie Mckenna joined participants from across the country to enhance their business skills, expand their networks, and participate in 60 business and business-related competitive events.
The student winners and their awards are:
Luis Goberna: 8th in Economic Analysis and Decision Making
Ben Genereaux: 8th in Economic Analysis and Decision Making
Stephanie McKenna: 9th in Justice Administration
Sharod Hinton: 10th in Organizational Business and Leadership
The awards were part of a comprehensive national competitive events program sponsored by FBLA-PBL that recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. In addition to competitions, students immersed themselves in interactive workshops, visited an information-packed exhibit hall, and heard from motivational keynotes on a broad range of business topics.
