Biz Students Rocking at National Business Competition

In April, Beckfield College happily shared the news of Phi Beta Lambda business organization members from the Florence, KY Campus who participated in a state competition and did so well they qualified for the National Competition.   That national competition has been taking place this week in Nashville, Tennessee.

Who ended up competing?

  • James Massengale & Ed Villaverde – Emerging Business Issues – Prelims on 6/25; Finals on 6/26
  • Wayne Strickland – Sales Presentation Prelims on – 6/25; Finals on 6/26
  • James Massengale – Business Communication 6/24 & 6/25
  • Ed Villaverde – Retail Management 6/25

Several students competed so well this week they were in the finals competition:  Ed Villaverde and James Massengale qualified for the finals in Emerging Business Issues AND Wayne Strickland qualified in Sales Presentation.


We’ve been posting updates and best wishes on Facebook.  We invite you to join in the celebration of these students.

We are proud of every student and every success achieved by every student!  These business students have worked extremely hard – both on their core areas of competition, but also the fundraising and coordination to get to the competition.  Congratulations!
