Chipola College sophomore Chirag (Chris) Shah was recently named Phi Beta Lambda Region I Vice-President for the state of Florida, representing colleges and universities in the northwest region of Florida on the PBL state board.
PBL is a non-profit educational association of student members whose mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs. Shah was instrumental in establishing the 2008-2009 PBL Florida theme, "Defy Gravity. Anytime. Anywhere." State officers selected the American Heart Association and the Buddy Walk as the official state projects for the coming year.
On the national level, Chipola student Adam Duren received recognition at the recent Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Atlanta. Duren won fifth place in Computer Concepts. Students from colleges and universities across the nation participated in competitive events, business training and leadership workshops.
