Barton College - Fall 2016

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 one Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) regional meeting. Chapter members pre-judged FBLA school-site tests. Jamie Barton and 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 President. Four members and two advisers/Professional Division members traveled to Atlanta, GA, for the PBL National Leadership Conference. 

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 19.  All day classes are cancelled!! We will bag white rice, brown rice, and beans and assist in distributing canned items to those in need.

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

Our chapter continues its Legacy to Leadership for both traditional and Accelerated Profession Program students through joint projects.
