Louisburg Graduate Wins at NLC

We are very excited to share that 2012 graduate David Safran was awarded first place in his competition category on Wednesday, June 27 at the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. He placed first in the "Sales Presentation" category, competing against students from schools such as Rutgers, Florida International, and Valparaiso University.

One of Safran's Phi Beta Lambda advisors, former business faculty member Nancy Hammersley, attended the national competition in support of her former student. "David is a joy to work with," Hammersley said after Safran's Phi Beta Lambda advisors, former business faculty member Nancy Hammersley, attended the national competition in support of her former student. "David is a joy to work with," Hammersley said after Safran's win. "He is mature, self-reliant, very confident, and just extremely well prepared and he understands what it takes to succeed." After graduating from Raleigh's Broughton High School, Safran trained in car repair and worked as a Land Rover technician, delving into medical sales a few years later. A church mission trip to the South American country of Guyana inspired Safran to consider a change in his life, and he decided to attend college to earn a business degree.  We hope that David's success will help inspire our current PBL members to achieve their potential this year.
