Seven USU Eastern PBL Business students competed in the Future Business Leaders of America state leadership conference at Snow College in Richfield, Utah, bring home six awards.
This PBL conference included several events where colleges from throughout Utah compete in categories centered on areas in business and entrepreneurship.
“Our students participated very well,” stated to Henning Olsen, head of USU Eastern’s Business Club. “They were dressed appropriately and represented USUE in a professional manner.”
Students representing Eastern at the conference included Christian Biese, Jacob Alvarado, David Colorado, Terrill Benally, Nathan Pena, Josie Ramstetter and Allison Scott.
Biese brought home four awards: third place in impromptu speaking, fifth place in public speaking, third place in business presentations and third place with Alverado in business decision making. Pena placed fifth in impromptu speaking while the team of Ramstetter and Scott placed second in emerging business issues.
“This was the first-time conference for these USUE students. Most of the students who attended had never been to a business meet,” Olsen said.
“With this experience behind them, they will know what to expect next time. The best part of the event was to witness students discover their potential in business.”
