Barton College PBL Making a Difference

The Gamma Gamma Chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) at Barton College is continuing its efforts to make a difference in the Wilson community, provide leadership development, enhance its visibility, increase membership, and raise funds for its projects.  

Eight members and an adviser traveled to San Antonio, TX, for the PBL National Leadership Conference again garnering trophies while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Riverfront. 

As a member of the Wilson Chamber of Commerce, the Gamma Gamma chapter volunteered for the Wilson Business Expo. The chapter displayed its trophies at the annual Club Fair and at the Majors Fair. All activities presented a unique opportunity to recruit our new and returning students.  The chapter has also exhibited at three sessions of Barton's Freshman Orientation-advertising our organization to prospective students.

Barton College members and Eastern Region Vice President Sarah Casey hosted the 2012 Eastern Region Kick-Off. Ten chapters with 48 members and advisers attended.

Chapter members fielded a team for the DZ Turtle Pull. The chapter will participate again this year in the Barton College Day of Service on October 17.  All classes are cancelled!!  

During the semester, we will partner with the Wilson Chamber of Commerce, the Wilson County Department of Social Services, and the Wil-Med Foundation assisting in their community service activities.  The chapter will also assist with the School of Business Alumni Social during Homecoming Weekend.

The chapter has a special Free Enterprise Day activity and March of Dimes project planned, as well as several fundraisers.

Our chapter continues to blend the talents of both traditional and Weekend College students through joint projects as we continue our journey Igniting Innovation!
