Barton College - Fall 2015

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. 

Chapter members judged and gave workshops at two Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) regional meetings. Chapter members pre-judged FBLA school-site tests. Our two advisers judged performances at the NC FBLA State Leadership Conference.

Members enjoyed success at the NCPBL State Leadership Conference in April. We are proud that Jamie Barton was again elected as NCPBL Eastern Region Vice President. Two members and two advisers/Professional Division members traveled to Chicago, IL, for the PBL National Leadership Conference experiencing a l-o-n-g charter bus ride with their friends from Central Carolina Community College and enjoyed the sights of the Windy City. 

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 an unique opportunity to recruit our new and returning students.  The chapter has also exhibited at sessions of Barton’s Freshman Orientation—advertising our organization to prospective students.

The chapter will participate again this year in the Barton College Day of Service on October 21.  All day 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 continue its Home Delivered Meals community service project—volunteering each Thursday to deliver meals in the community.

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

Our chapter continues to Connect the talents of both traditional and Accelerated Profession Program students through joint projects.
