Balderstone, Couch and Nevil qualified to compete at the national level at the PBL National Convention in Atlanta in June.
The delegation was accompanied by Omega Theta chapter adviser, Rebecca Haney.
"All of the fundraising that PBL does throughout the year goes to support student involvement in this competition and the upcoming national one in June, so a very big thank you to each and every person who helps in our fundraising efforts," said Haney. "We really could not do this without your assistance."
More than 250 students, advisors and professional division members representing 26 chapters participated in the conference and academic competition representing community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, some from the North Carolina University System.
Along with conference sessions, business-related workshops and election of state officers, the majority of the conference centers on the academic competitions, which cover more than 50 business areas.
