Stanly CC Receives Local Recognition

The Stanly Community College chapter has been busy since last spring, and we're excited about the upcoming year and the "Igniting Innovation" theme.

After last year's SLC, two PBL'ers were among the 12 college students honored at the annual Student Leadership Awards Luncheon.  In honor of the city hosting the 2012 Democratic National Convention, the theme of awards program was "Charlotte -- A Leading City!"  Honored with college medallions were Jeri Nester and Brandon Harkey.

During the program, PBL received the SCC "Soaring Eagle" award as the Club of the Year for 2011-12.

A full page in the SCC CONNECTIONS magazine featured Stanly's SLC participation and pictures of event winners.  The magazine is published twice a year and mailed to every resident in the county and placed in waiting rooms at businesses throughout the county.

In June, Brandon Harkey attended a Chamber of Commerce meeting to present Chamber President Matt Smith with his plaque as the state PBL Business Person of the Year.  A picture of the presentation was published in the local newspaper.

Eleven chapter delegates attended the national conference in San Antonio.  State Officers Courtney Seidenschmidt and Brandon Harkey participated in the Institute for Leaders program preceding NLC.  Four NLC pictures were published with an article in the local newspaper.

Members assisted with the Chamber's Business Expo in October, getting the opportunity to meet business owners throughout the county.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming fall conference and send all our fellow PBL members best wishes for a good year.
