NGTC Students Place at National PBL Competition

A group of North Georgia Technical College students are back after placing at a national competition.

The Phi Beta Lambda National Competition was held in Anaheim, California last month.

North Georgia Tech sent six contestants.

They included a Parliamentary Procedures team that placed tenth.

That team included two Toccoa residents, Lisa Hook and Ryan Norton.

North Georgia Technical College Advisor Brad Cagle said he is particularly proud of the Parliamentary Procedures team and said it was his honor to work with them extensively this year, preparing for their first time in this event.

Cagle commended all of the students on their behavior, promptness, and appearance, adding that each of them represented North Georgia Tech, Phi Beta Lambda, and themselves with the highest character and integrity.

Meanwhile, North Georgia Tech Vice President for Academic Affairs Kathie Ivester said the school is proud of each student who participated in the PBL competition, noting that they invested their time and skills to take full advantage of this opportunity to grow their professionalism and confidence. She also thanked Cagle and Tim Green for their work as advisors.

Phi Beta Lambda, or PBL, is the collegiate arm of the Future Business Leaders of America, which is a business career student organization.
