Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is a business organization designed to prepare the student for success as leaders in business, government, and the community. Its mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development.
The organization’s annual state competition was held March 25-27 at the Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, MS. Three CCC Computer Servicing and Technology students, Joshua Stevens, Joseph Fisher and John Fisher, all of Clarksdale, MS, competed in the areas of Computer Applications and Computer Concepts. John placed first in Computer Applications.
PBL Advisor Kimberly Hollins said the competition was great learning experience for the students.
