SANFORD -- The Central Carolina Community College Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) chapter has won numerous awards this year, including a national Outstanding Chapter award and first place for the Largest Professional Division in the country.
The PBL chapter, which is the fourth largest in the country, recently held its annual awards banquet to celebrate the accomplishments over the last academic year.

Phi Beta Lambda, a national student organization, promotes business leadership in its members.

"Their drive is unequal and their commitment to the chapter, college, and community is shown continuously with their accomplishments throughout the year."
