CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda recently participated in the organization’s State Leadership Conference/Competition, with two Tigers bringing home awards.
During the competition, three Office Systems Technology students competed in the areas of Administrative Technology, Computer Applications, and Computer Concepts. They were: John Fisher, Joseph Fisher and Sylvia Sutton—all of Clarksdale, MS.
Joseph Fisher received 2nd place in Computer Applications and John Fisher received 3rd place in Administrative Technology.
According to John and Joseph, both second-time conference attenders, the competition was a great learning experience.
“I was able to network with other students from the Mississippi area and made some new connections,” said John.
“Overall, the competition overall went well,” added Joseph. “I placed second during the competition and met a few new people there.”
As part of the competition, students took an objective test, which counted for 50 percent of their score, in addition to demonstrating their ability to produce various documents in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access.
CCC Instructor and Phi Beta Lambda Advisor Kimberly Hollins said she impressed by the students’ performances.
“I am extremely proud of the students who competed at Mississippi University for Women,” said Hollins. “The students worked hard and studied in preparing for the competition. At the conference, they were presented the opportunity to network with students from other community and senior colleges in Mississippi. …It’s always exciting when you can return to your school with awards.”
Phi Beta Lambda is a business organization designed to prepare students for success as leaders in business, education, and the community. Its mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development.
The winners will have an opportunity to compete at the National Leadership Conference/Competition in Atlanta, GA June 24-27.
