CMU students qualify for national competition

Sixteen members of the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda Chapter at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction have qualified to compete in a national leadership conference in Baltimore this summer.

The 16 students qualified by virtue of winning a total of 32 top-three awards at the Colorado leadership conference in Denver, where they competed in business-based tests, presentations and role-playing events. The students captured 17 first-place awards, 10 second-place awards and five third-place awards.

The qualifying students are: Robert Anderson, Anna Bell, Josiah Bohrer, Jarrott Brown, Avery Cantrell, Nikki Clark, Sarah Glidden, Trevor Gunnels, Dana Pogar, Kacie Sams, Dillon Sandrock, Steven Schopen, Alli Stubits, Heather Swain, Currey Ventling and Faith Wood.

In addition, three CMU students were elected to the Colorado PBL state officer team at the state conference. Ventling, a senior, was elected vice president. Wood, a freshman, was elected secretary. Bohrer, also a freshman, was elected treasurer. They will serve during the 2018-2019 academic year.
