Friday was the 2008 Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference. Wake Tech had 38 students competing.
I was taking the test for Accounting Analysis and Decision Making. Two of my classmates, Super Smart Guy and Former Navy Guy, took the Accounting Principles test. That would have been my choice as well, but each school can only have two people in a particular test.
Out of the 38 who competed, 36 of us placed in our respective events. I placed sixth (my first question was “Out of how many?” but I’m told there were at least ten). Former Navy Guy placed fifth, and Super Smart Guy placed first. He’ll go on to compete in the national competition.
Naturally the instructors at Wake Tech are tickled pink, as this reflects quite well on them. The accounting department head was practically skipping to class today.
