NDSU students won honors in the Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference held March 31-April 1 in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The conference featured student competitions, networking opportunities and presentations from industry leaders.
NDSU students earned five first place awards, two second place awards and two third place awards. Miranda Letzring, a junior majoring in finance, and Casondra Rutschke, a junior majoring in business administration and management, were awarded the NDSU Who’s Who Award for their dedication to their school’s chapter. Rutschke also was awarded the North Dakota Who’s Who Award for her work in reactivating NDSU’s Phi Beta Lambda chapter this year after a five-year hiatus.
“The opportunity to reactivate the NDSU Phi Beta Lambda chapter is one that has given me the ability to help other students develop their skills and grow into the individuals they want to be,” said Rutschke, chapter president.
Phi Beta Lambda, the collegiate division of the national high school organization Future Business Leaders of America, is the largest student-run organization in the United States. The group focuses on developing leadership skills and collaboration. Students from all majors can join.
The conference participants were Rutschke, Letzring, Alexa Braaten, a junior majoring in biological sciences; Miles Novak, a senior majoring in management communication; and Kelsie Zimmerman, a junior accounting major. Kate Tulibaski and Andrea Smith of the College of Business serve as faculty advisers.
