Peru, Nebraska  Seventeen Phi Beta Lambda students from Peru State College have earned the chance to compete at the national level during the organization’s National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Peru State’s PBL Chapter brought home more than 75 awards from the state-level competition, however the qualified competitors could only choose two events each to compete in at the national level.

Dr. Sheri Grotrian, professor of business and Peru State’s PBL advisor, says, “It’s been another fantastic year of getting new students involved and mentored by students who have participated for multiple years. Our PBL group continues to become very tight-knit, collaborative and supportive.”

She concludes, “I’m excited to see how our students perform in San Antonio this summer. There is definitely potential for some national awards.”

The National Leadership Conference also encourages attending students to network, develop leadership skills, and visit exhibitors and vendors. Students share their successes and learn new ideas about shaping their future careers through workshops.
