Bowling Green, KY (April 13-14, 2018) –  The newly established Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) chapter at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) won four awards Saturday, April 14, at the 2018 Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership conference at the University of Kentucky.

“Mrs. Harris and I could not be more proud of these students.  They have definitely set a good example for our chapter, especially it being our first year,” said Kim Otto, Associate Professor of the Business Administration Systems division and Phi Beta Lambda adviser at SKYCTC. “They have worked very hard this year by participating in community service activities, including teaching Junior Achievement at Warren Elementary and volunteering at Hope House’s Affordable Christmas.  The dedication and professionalism that these students have shown through our Phi Beta Lambda Chapter has exceeded our expectations.”

Members Latasha Bunton, Tate Honaker, and Brandon Riney won first place in the Business Ethics competition. Riney also won first place in the Cybersecurity competition.

SKYCTC’s Phi Beta Lambda Chapter won second place for Outstanding Local Phi Beta Lambda Chapter and second place for Largest Chapter Membership.

It is an organization for students to meet and network with others at the local, state, and national levels. The Phi Beta Lambda competitions provide students with what it takes to be successful by covering technology, public speaking, business, ethics, finance, and management.
