Butler Community College students won numerous top awards at the 64th Annual Phi Beta Lambda Kansas State Leadership Conference Feb. 13-14 at Fort Hays State University.

Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is a national business-leadership organization allowing students to prepare for careers in business and business-related fields. Members attend conferences, participate in business-related competitions, serve the community and network with professionals.

“PBL is an excellent way for students to connect with business and to utilize the skills they are learning in the classroom to compete against their peers at two-year and four-year colleges,” said Janice Akao, Butler’s PBL advisor.

Audra Anderson of McPherson: first place in Cost Accounting
