Ste. Genevieve High School graduate Dylan Burr, currently a student at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, received two national awards at the Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) National Leadership Conference last month in San Antonio, Texas.
More than 1,200 college students from across the United States attended the conference.
In addition to having the opportunity to enhance their business skills and expand their networks, the students participated in 60 business and business-related competitive events with an opportunity to win more than $110,000 in cash awards.
During the PBL Awards of Excellence program on June 26, Burr received first place in website design and programming concepts.
For website design, Burr created a website for a food truck he named the Cheese Mobile.
The programming concepts event required a test on different computer science concepts.
“I am just so amazed that I was able to take home another first-place national trophy in website design,” Burr said. “That’s three years in a row.
“I also was not expecting to place first in programming concepts because this was the first year I have ever competed in it, but I was so excited when I received the trophy.”
