Students Win Business-Related Competitions at State Conference

Five students from Penn State Brandywine competed and won awards at the State Leadership Conference for Phi Beta Lambda in Gettysburg. During the three-day Future Business Leaders of America conference, the students networked with other members and business professionals from throughout the state, attended workshops and general sessions and helped to elect next year's Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) state officers.

Throughout the conference, the students competed in various events that tested their business knowledge and skills. Senior John Dezell placed first in the Management Concepts event, while Karthik Cahalawada and seniors Martin Iepson and David Vesely placed third in the Merging Business Issues team event. Vesely also finished out his term as state secretary for Pennsylvania PBL.

"Being a state officer and responsible for helping to put the conference together, I think the conference was a great success," Vesely said. "We had an excellent keynote speaker and the workshops were all enjoyed. I talked to a lot of PBL members from other schools that also enjoyed the conference."
