OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJodi Rogers of Red Creek and Kevin Franceschelli of Auburn, members of the Cayuga Community College Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) business club, advanced to the finals at the National Future Business Leaders PBL Conference in Anaheim, Calif., this past July.  Both placed in the top 15 nationally in their respective competition category, word processing and public speaking.

Business Instructor and club advisor Amy Valente said she was proud of the success her students achieved. “It was a huge accomplishment for two of our students to be in the finals,” she said.

The students were part of a five-member team from Cayuga who qualified at states to compete at the national competition. The other team members included James Molina (public speaking), Max Appleby (Community Service, Sales Presentation, and Hospitality and Tourism), and Natalie Krone (Community Service).

The FBLA-PBL National Awards Program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. Individual and team events focus on skills useful in leadership and career development; chapter events recognize overall achievement and performance in chapter management and growth.
