A group of future businessmen and women traveled to Jefferson City, Mo., for the Annual Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference April 1-2.

Members of Truman’s Phi Beta Lambda business fraternity chapter received numerous awards for their work in different areas of business such as economics and information management.

This year’s conference, themed “Missouri PBL-Show Me Motivation,” featured competitive events for individuals and teams, leadership training and the election of officers for next year.

Students elected Kyle Gifford, junior political science major from Columbia, Mo., to the position of state vice president and Andrew Greiner, freshman from Des Moines, Iowa, to the position of state reporter for the 2005-2006 academic year.

Truman received the Gold Seal Chapter Award of Merit at the conference. Students were recognized for their March of Dimes project and received third place in the largest local chapter membership.

Individual students earning first place awards included Gifford, Amy Rowden, freshman physics and economics major from Dixon, Mo.; Sabrina Sandeen, junior pre-accounting major from St. Louis; and Dan Houchins, junior business administration major from Dutzow, Mo.
