Four College Students Finish in Top 10 Among National Competitors

Four Pennsylvania College of Technology students attending this month’s Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Denver placed in the Top 10 in their respective competition categories.

Among the top finishers during the July 8-12 event were Billie J. Conrad of RR 2 Millerstown and Alexander Kantor of Harrisburg, eighth place in the Business Plan category; Clinton M. Cullison of Harrisburg, eighth in Economics; and Randy A. Klein of Plymouth Meeting, seventh place in Computer Concepts.

Conrad is majoring in Business Administration-Management Concentration, Kantor in Computer Information Technology-Internetworking Application Development Concentration, Cullison in Business Administration-Marketing Concentration, and Klein in Business Administration Management Information Systems Concentration.

The students, advised by Dr. Dennis R. Williams, associate professor of business administration, had advanced to national competition on the basis of their statewide performance in Williamsport in April.

The conference consisted of two parts: a two-day Institute for leaders, from which four Penn College students graduated with honors; and the PBL competition and annual meeting, during which students attended workshops such as “Igniting Your Entrepreneurial Spirit” and “Leading in College When the Heat Is On.”

PBL is the postsecondary division of Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda Inc., a national nonprofit educational association of students preparing for careers in business or related fields.
