News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - A group of Lindsey Wilson College business students recently earned statewide recognition for their work.
Members of the Lindsey Wilson chapter of Phi Beta Lambda business fraternity won several honors at the statewide competition, held March 20-22, 2015, at the University of Pikeville. The competition included more than 150 students from Kentucky colleges and universities.
The winners from the Lindsey Wilson chapter of Phi Beta Lambda are included: Michael Robinson of Little Rock, AR, who won first place in computer applications; Hillary Bumpus of Providence, KY, who placed second in contemporary issues in sports; Katherine Dickerson of Louisville, KY, who placed second in microeconomics; and Caio da Cruz of Sao Paulo, Brazil, who placed third in macroeconomics.
The winners from state competition move on to the national competition, which will be held at the end of June in Chicago.
LWC Associate Professor of Business and Economics Trudy Morlino said the LWC students' strong showing is an example of the business division's strength.
"Our program is strong because of the students and the support we get," said Morlino, who is the chapter's adviser. "We have a diverse group of faculty who teach a wide variety of business courses that help prepare students for careers in management, entrepreneurship and accounting."
Morlino said the LWC students' success is even more impressive considering that the college's Phi Beta Lambda chapter was founded only a year ago.
"We already have the largest chapter, which says a lot about our students' interest in building their resumes and being successful beyond the classroom," she said. "It also helps students develop their leadership skills, set goals and how to manage a business."
Jordan Blair of Columbia, who helped found the LWC Phi Beta Lambda chapter, said being a member of the organization has enhanced his education in several ways.
"It's another way to learn outside of the classroom," said Blair, who is chapter president. "You get different outlooks about ideas and issues. I like how you get to demonstrate what you learn in the classroom."
Robinson said winning first place in in computer applications "has shown me that you don't have to win something to be successful, but it feels good to win."
"It's just a great way to network and meet other people," he said. "I've grown a lot by being a part of this program."
