After not allowing last-minute changes to affect their performance, Montgomery County Community College business students placed among the top three in eleven categories at the annual Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda State Competition.
Unlike previous years, the competition was held online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It was a fierce competition against more than 30 other colleges, but we put our best foot forward,” said Nicoletta Pelchat, a co-president of MCCC’s PBL Chapter. “Every member who participated placed.”
MCCC PBL members achieved six first-place awards, eight second-place awards, and three third-place awards; the Outstanding Chapter, Gold Seal Award of Merit, Community Service Project, and Local Annual Chapter Business Report awards among the collection.
Management Instructor Damon Gray, the club’s advisor, was recognized with the Advisor of the Year award for the second year in a row.
“I’m very proud of what the students accomplished, especially in light of the transition to a virtual format and the short amount of time they had to adjust,” said Gray.
This outstanding performance at the state level has also secured the team a spot in the virtual national competition that will be held from June 24 to 26.
