Two win future business leaders awards
Hernando County residents Robert Ruth and Tanisha Johnson, both members of the Pasco-Hernando Community College Phi Beta Lambda North Campus business club, recently received Future Business Leaders of America Awards of Excellence.
Ruth received a second-place contemporary sports issues award; Johnson placed 10th in the retail management category.
The FBLA-PBL National Leadership Conference competition was held in Anaheim, Calif. The awards program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas.
At the state conference, students compete in events testing business knowledge and skills. Top state winners are eligible to compete at the annual National Leadership Conference.
"Placing in the top 10 in a national competition is a real accomplishment, and both Johnson and Ruth did their part for the Florida team," said PHCC associate professor Sheridan Park.
