Phi Beta Lambda eyes State Conference after strong District showing

By Drew Hulse

Three Reinhardt University students earned honors at the Georgia Phi Beta Lambda North District Conference March 2 and are on track to compete in state and national conferences.

Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) prepares students for careers in business-related fields. Through district and state competitions during the spring semester, university chapters compete in events testing their business knowledge and skills. Top state winners are then invited to compete at the National Leadership Conference each summer.

During the district competition, senior business major Kristen Holder placed first in the Impromptu Speaking category and second in Job Interview; sophomore business major Marissa Ginsberg placed second in both Business Presentation and Human Resources; and junior sports studies major Ariel Murphy placed second in Business Presentation.

Holder also serves as the Georgia Vice President of Public Relations, and Murphy is the Georgia Vice President of National Projects.

“We have competed in district and state competitions for four years,” said PBL Advisor Cindy Moss. “Every student has always placed in the top three in state competition, and for the last three years, we have taken four or five to national competition.”

District, state and national PBL competitions provide Reinhardt students—in addition to awards and travel opportunities—valuable networking and interviewing experience that builds resumes and strengthens relationships with professors.

Reinhardt students will compete at the State Leadership Conference on April 6 in Atlanta. The National Leadership Conference will take place this June in Baltimore.
