NCMC business students place in top ten nationally

NCMC Business Students Place Top Ten Nationally

Two North Central Missouri College business students competed this summer at the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

Aubrey Nelson and Tatumn Skinner both qualified for the national competition by placing first at the state level.  Aubrey and Tatumn competed together in the Business Presentation team event.  At the competition, each team had to prepare a business presentation then make a presentation in front of three corporate judges. 

NCMC was well represented as Tatumn and Aubrey sailed past 40 teams from all over the United States to make it into the top 15, they were then recognized as the 9th team in the nation.

“Any time you can make it in the top ten you have really accomplished something, as the competition is very tough” -Sarah Bird Advisor PBL, NCMC Business Instructor. 

Aubrey also competed in the Business Decision Making competition where she placed 7th in the nation.  This competition focuses on a student’s ability to think on their feet and then communicate what action the business should take in a real world situation. Placing top ten in two events is extremely difficult. 

“NCMC is so very proud to have two students like Aubrey and Tatumn representing us at the National Leadership Conference.  They have both achieved so much this year; we cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two.” -Sarah Bird Advisor PBL, NCMC Business Instructor
