Six students from the Alice Lloyd College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, accompanied by Dr. Lenore Pollard, traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to compete in the National Leadership Conference. The conference took place June 24th-27th at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. The students were up against an estimated 2,000 competitors from colleges across America. They competed in events ranging from multiple choice tests to impromptu responses.
Allison Holbrook, state secretary for Kentucky Phi Beta Lambda, placed 6th in Project Management. Amelia Johnson ranked in the top 15 in the nation for her professional presentation in Community Service. She was also recognized for her completion of the Membership Madness event for the Career and Membership Achievement program. Kristen Haney reached finals in Help Desk, an extemporaneous response to fictional scenarios, placing her in the top 15 as well. Austin Allen, Courtney Crowder, and Jennifer Lewis also competed in various events.
Alice Lloyd College was also awarded the Gold Seal Chapter Award, which recognizes ALC’s Phi Beta Lambda as a top performing chapter in the nation. We would like to congratulate all students that participated and we are excited to see what PBL will achieve in the upcoming academic year!
