Cody alum brings home the National Champion title

For business students Kitra Cody, a 2018 graduate of Cody-Kilgore High School, and Diego Korol, months of hard work and preparation paid off when the pair won first place in a team event at the national Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) competition, hosted June 24-27, 2019, in San Antonio, TX.

Other YC students also participated in the national competition, having dominated at the state level. In all, five students and one faculty member represented York at the national conference, competing in nine events. In addition to competitive events, students were able to take part in workshops and lectures, as well as professional networking.

“I am extremely proud of all of these students,” said Stacie Turnbull, assistant professor of agribusiness and PBL coach. “They all worked hard, preparing, studying, practicing and, most importantly, stepping out of their comfort zones.”
