Phi Beta Lambda Earns 16 Wins from Texas State Leadership Conference
In April, students from the University of Houston chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) placed among the top competitors in various pre-professional categories at the Texas State Leadership Conference at Stephen F. Austin State University.
The organization, which counts Bauer students among about half its membership, works to help students build leadership skills and prepare for the workforce through competition.
During the conference, students from several different universities across Texas competed against one another in categories that test business knowledge and skills. Top state winners that receive a first or second place designation qualified to compete at nationals, which will take place in San Antonio in June.
“This was just our second year competing, and our students showcased the amazing talent we have at UH,” PBL president Pooja Agrawal said. “We had 13 students compete and win 16 total awards. I cannot wait to see what we achieve at nationals!”
