Northeast Community College business student, Beth Ebmeier of Laurel has had quite a year. In June, Ebmeier and Jenna McCleary of Battle Creek, members of Northeast Community College’s PBL Chapter, placed second at the National PBL Conference in Nashville, TN, in the “Strategic Analysis and Decision Making” category. Then in November, Ebmeier and McCleary were honored in Lincoln for their national achievement. They received Nebraska State Board of Education’s “Commissioners Recognition of Student Excellence in Career Education” award at a program held in the state capitol rotunda. That resulted in Ebmeier’s getting her picture taken with Governor Heineman (McCleary wasn’t able to attend the event).
