TCC— Metro took a total of twenty students to the conference and brought home over 50 awards. Of the students who participated in the conference, nineteen of them qualified for national competition. Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is the collegiate chapter of Future Business Leaders of America. Students who participate in PBL are students who hope to be tomorrow’s business leaders in the Tulsa Community. PBL is active in community service projects, student learning activities, and competitive events so Oklahoma can be represented nationally in a dignified, intelligent, and creative way. PBL members who are winners at the State Conference have the “competitive edge,” as the best and brightest of PBL convene to compete in leadership events, share their successes, and learn new ideas about shaping their career future through workshops and exhibits at the National Leadership Conference. The PBL National Leadership Conference is considered the pinnacle of the PBL experience, especially for those running for national office. PBL has forged partnerships with industry leaders to underwrite competitive events and scholarships for students achieving national ranking. With more than 140 active members, Tulsa Community College—Metro Campus has the largest membership of any college statewide and ranks 6th nationally. This outranks some of Oklahoma’s most prestigious four-year universities! Local chapter advisors Mr. Mitchell Ober, Ms. Gae Hill and Ms. Vonn Goolsby are attributed with the success of the TCC—Metro Chapter of PBL along with the support of the entire Administrative Staff at TCC— Metro. Without their guidance and never-ending support, the student members would not know how to recruit more business students to participate in this exciting endeavor nor have the support needed to effectively raise funds for these events. Without the support of local business and industry leaders in Tulsa, TCC—Metro would never have made this great accomplishment. PBL hopes to continue to rely on your support. The photo above depicts the TCC—Metro student winners, along with their awards. The students eligible for national competition in Nashville placed first, second, or third in his or her competitive event.
