Barton College - Fall 2017

The Gamma Gamma Chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) at Barton College is continuing its efforts to make a difference in the Wilson community, provide leadership development, enhance its visibility, increase membership, and raise funds for its projects.  

 

Chapter members judged and gave workshops at one Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) regional meeting. Chapter members pre-judged FBLA school-site tests. Jamie Barton and our two advisers judged performances at the 2017 NC FBLA State Leadership Conference.

 

Members enjoyed success at the NCPBL State Leadership Conference in April. We are proud that Luke Miller was elected as NCPBL Secretary and Luis Reyes was elected as NCPBL Eastern Region Vice President. Five members and two advisers/Professional Division members traveled to Anaheim, CA, for the PBL National Leadership Conference.  

 

As a member of the Wilson Chamber of Commerce, the Gamma Gamma chapter volunteered for the Wilson Business Expo. The chapter displayed its trophies at the annual Club Fair and at the Majors Fair. All activities presented an unique opportunity to recruit our new and returning students.  The chapter has also exhibited at sessions of Barton’s Freshman Orientation—advertising our organization to prospective students.

 

The chapter participatd again this year in the10th Barton College Day of Service on October 18.  All day classes are cancelled!! We will bag white rice, brown rice, and beans and assist in distributing canned items to those in need.

 

During the semester, we will partner with the Wilson Chamber of Commerce, the Wilson County Department of Social Services, and the Wil-Med Foundation assisting in their community service activities.

 

The chapter has a special Free Enterprise Day activity and March of Dimes project planned, as well as several fundraisers.

 

Our chapter continues to Elevate Our Future for both traditional, Accelerated Profession Program, and the MBA in Strategic Leadership students through joint projects.
