SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College's Phi Beta Lambda chapter recently inducted its newest members.
Phi Beta Lambda is the national organization for students in post-secondary schools and colleges who are enrolled in business, office, and business education programs. PBL is an integral part of the instructional program and promotes civic and personal responsibility.
Outgoing Chapter President Ivory Moore said that we must have leaders in our society. "The future of our country depends on the quality of leadership we produce, so you must learn to recognize the situations in which your individual talents become useful," he said. "Phi Beta Lambda emphasizes the duty of its members to prepare for the great task of leadership in the years ahead."
Vice President Genesis Santini reminded members of the PBL purposes: to develop competent, aggressive leadership; to strengthen the confidence of students in themselves and their work; to encourage members in the development of individual projects which contributed to the improvement of home, business, and community; to develop character, prepare for useful citizenship, and foster patriotism; to encourage scholarship and promote school loyalty; to assist students in the establishment of occupational goals; and to facilitate the transition from school to work.
Moore announced the new CCCC PBL officers: Dylan Hargis, President; Genesis Santini, Vice President; Keyon Jones, Parliamentarian; Joshua Panee, Historian; and James Crump, Public Relations Officer.
Hargis, in his remarks, noted a quote from John Quincy Adams: "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
"Tonight, you have accepted that challenge and, in PBL, you will find the tools to prepare for the future," said Hargis. "I look forward to working with each one of you and welcome you to the chapter."
CCCC PBL chapter advisers Michael Fann, Diane Kannarr, Shirley Rijkse, Pam Riddle, and Amber Thomas were recognized. CCCC President Dr. T. Eston Marchant presented opening remarks.
