The Stanly Community College (SCC) Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) chapter recently recognized SCC Director of Marketing Michelle Peifer by making its annual contribution to the business student group's state scholarship fund in her honor.
Ms. Peifer is a graduate of East Carolina University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Education, Information Technologies, Magna Cum Laude, and her Master of Science in Vocational Education. She has been a member of the SCC staff since 2004.
"As business-related students, PBL members realize the importance of effective communications, marketing, and public relations, and those are Ms. Peifer's areas of expertise," Chapter President Katrina Sams stated. "In doing effective work for the College, she has made an effort to highlight student success stories and the community service and leadership development projects of campus groups like PBL. We are glad to have this opportunity to call attention to her support of the students and the educational programs available at SCC."
"It's been my pleasure to work with the PBL leadership team," commented Ms. Peifer. "I'm always encouraging our students to become involved with PBL where they can learn to build networks, gain leadership skills, develop personal attributes, and so much more. It's all about bringing business and education together in a positive working relationship."
The scholarship is administered through the NCPBL Professional Division-Foundation, Inc. The 2015 scholarship recipients are Jesse Print from Pfeiffer University and Angela Lore from Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.
