On Saturday April 1, 2017, twenty-four business students had the opportunity to compete at the Phi Beta Lambda completion. This is an annual competition and this year Snow College hosted it at the Richfield campus.
Many colleges and Universities competed; The University of Utah, Brigham Young University, Utah State University Eastern, Southern Utah University and many more.
This year at PBL, many of Snow’s own students excelled. There was an array of different events that students competed in. Out of the 24 students that attended almost half walked away with a first place win.
Those students were Sergio Arellano, Kimi Bailey, Karson Draper, Jerry Feng, Amy Ha, Collin Hatch, Joseph Loew, Bill Mckowen, Stephanie Olson, Kristlyn Peterson, and Kendall Smith.
The top two or three students in each event get the opportunity of competing at the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference this Summer in Anaheim.
Not only was Snow College represented well in all of the events, but one of Snow College’s very own, Collin Hatch, was elected the state president of the PBL for the upcoming year.
Snow College Business Chapter was also awarded the $150 Gold Seal Chapter award. Awards were given and scholarships were awarded, which made it to be a very successful competition for Snow College’s Business department.
Stacee McIff, who helped organize this event, said, “I must give particular thanks to those who helped make everything happen, including Jeff Sirrine, Matt Nelson, Weston Mitchell, and the whole facilities and front office staff in Richfield.”
If you see any of the students who competed, don’t be afraid to congratulate them on a job well done.
