Webber FBLA-PBL Chapter Places at State Competition BABSON PARK, FL For Immediate Release During their Spring Break, nine Webber students chose to spend some of their vacation time at the Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) Florida State Leadership Conference (SLC) in Orlando, FL. Esmeralda Fernandez, Logan Stewart, Joyce Caba, Carlos Rocha, Jordan Lively, David Szotkowski, Myusei Hagiwara, Brandon Zayhowski, and Jalen Cayo competed in a variety of topics related to business, from Contemporary Sports Issues to Cyber Security to Macroeconomics. Some topics are performance based, some are written exams, and some are a combination of the two. For most of the Webber students, this was their first time competing in a state-level FBLA-PBL competition. Joyce Caba is one of those students. When asked about her experience in FBLA-PBL, Caba said, “I am honored to be a part of the PBL organization at my university. PBL has helped me broaden my business perspective. Through events and competitions, I am able get extra practice and knowledge which I can apply to real world situations. Experience like this is hard to find in classrooms.” Webber International University is proud to announce that multiple students walked away from the SLC with awards. David Szotkowski, Myusei Hagiwara, and Brandon Zayhowski placed 3rd in Business Decision Making and Jordan Lively placed 4th in Entrepreneurship Concepts. We are confident that the Webber students will continue to excel in future years!
