The University of Pikeville’s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) recently earned top honors garnering several awards in academic competition during the Kentucky spring leadership conference held on the campus of Northern Kentucky University in March.
PBL members throughout Kentucky participated in workshops, academic competitions and election of state officers. Students who placed first or second in the academic competitions qualify to compete at the Phi Beta Lambda national leadership conference in San Antonio, Tx., in June. The conference will include participants from all 50 states and the U.S. territories.
Students Ricki Maynard and Jessica Huffman, both of Pikeville, will represent the university in the national competition. Maynard placed first in the telecommunications event and Huffman placed second in marketing concepts. Also participating in the statewide competition were Danielle Dials of Paintsville, Tyler Hazelett of Pikeville and Sarah Hunt of Mouthcard.
The chapter also received a second place award for fundraising efforts in support of the March of Dimes, which is a national service project for PBL.
