The Phi Beta Lambda student organization, also known as PBL, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney will be offering to assist Kearney residents with yard cleanup on Saturday, Oct. 6.

The students will do general yard clean-up and will remove leaves and other foliage as a fund-raising project for the organization.

In general, the students will do general clean-up and removal of yard waste for $25-$35 and clean gutters for $10-$15.

“Yards that substantially exceed a standard city lot size, or heavily landscape yards, may be subject to an additional fee to be determined upon arrival,” said Mary Rittenhouse, economics senior lecturer and PBL adviser.

For more information, or to reserve a time on Oct. 6, e-mail or call 308.865.8707.

Rittenhouse said, “The proceeds from the project will go toward professional development opportunities for the UNK chapter members.”

The PBL students have the opportunity to attend state and national conferences that will allow students to compete in leadership events and to learn about new avenues in shaping their futures, Rittenhouse said.

“The goal of this organization is to help students develop their potential as leaders on the college campus and in their careers,” Rittenhouse said. “Students engage in activities that develop their skills, character and citizenship.”

Phi Beta Lambda, the college counterpart of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), is a student organization for students interested in business and business education aimed at developing and strengthening the skills of future business leaders.
