MCC PBL CHAPTER EARNED TOP HONORS AT FBLA-PBL STATE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL), the largest and oldest
student business organization, held its State Leadership Conference in Georgetown,
KY on April 10-11. Participants from across Kentucky were in attendance for this exciting
conference to sharpen their core business skills, expand their networks, and participate
in more than 55 business and business-related competitive events.
Madisonville Community College (MCC) had 12 outstanding students compete at the state
level. Clarissa Hill and Kim Simons, advisers, were so proud of the students that
took the initiative to not only get involved, but to excel! MCC had 9 students that
placed either 1st or 2nd place in their respective competitions. For many students,

with students from across Kentucky, and bonded as an organizational group.
