Merit Badge University

Date: Saturday, November 14th, 2014

The Robert W. Plaster School of Business at Missouri Southern State University, along with Phi Beta Lambda-Collegiate DECA, hosts an annual Merit Badge University for area Boy Scouts.

More than 150 Boy Scouts have registered for the event each year, which allows them the opportunity to earn badges in areas such as personal management, public speaking, art and entrepreneurship. Those attending will have the opportunity to earn up to two badges during morning and afternoon sessions. The Ozarks Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America will also be holding adult leadership sessions for Scout leaders and those who wish to be approved as leaders.

The event serves as a fundraiser for Phi Beta Lambda and the Collegiate DECA organizations at Missouri Southern.

“This is one of the main fundraisers for the year for PBL/C-DECA,” said Stu Dunlop, assistant professor of marketing and co-advisor to the student groups. “We have about 30 volunteers – faculty, students and alumni – who will help with running the event.
