PBL Excels at State Leadership Conference
Eastern’s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda excelled at the 2011 Kentucky PBL Spring Leadership Conference.
Misty Brumley, a management major from Nicholasville, Kentucky, represented Eastern Kentucky University. Brumley placed first in both of her academic competitive events, Human Resources Management and Management Concepts.
The EKU Chapter was also awarded third place for “Outstanding PBL Chapter in the State.”
This is Misty’s third year as a PBL member with the EKU Chapter. She has served two terms as vice president of the local chapter and secretary of the state chapter. One of the nicest compliments Misty had to say was, “PBL made my college experience. PBL has given me a chance to build relationships with people of different backgrounds. It has allowed me to experience a more social side of college that I think most non-traditional students miss out on. My experiences have given me confidence when speaking to business professionals as well as relationships that will hopefully last well into the future.”
Misty certainly has been the leader, motivator, and “rock” of the EKU chapter this academic year. She is already planning for the national academic competitions at the Leadership Conference in Orlando this summer. “Thank you and congratulations to Misty Brumley for showing the high standards we set for EKUBusiness students” said Dr. Marcel Robles, Eastern’s PBL faculty adviser.
PBL is a professional organization of more than 250,000 students that is designed to bridge the gap from the classroom to the business world by helping students learn about the business community. EKU’s local PBL chapter is dedicated to the development of students as future professional business leaders.
