A Butts County resident has been honored nationally in the Phi Beta Lambda competition in client services.

Norma Cline, a recent graduate of Southern Crescent Technical College, placed 10th in the nation in the competition held June 28 in Baltimore. She placed second in the earlier Georgia competition.

Cline is a recent honor graduate from Southern Crescent Tech with a degree in business administration technology. She has served as secretary for Phi Beta Lambda and has been active in the National Technical Honor Society and Student Government Association. She was also a finalist for the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership, and was an ambassador for Southern Crescent Tech in 2017 and 2018.

Cline is the mother of three sons: Caleb Otoki, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps; Joshua Acoff, a theater education major at Columbus State University; and Christian Cline, a 2018 Jackson High School honor graduate who will be attending the Savannah College of Art and Design in the fall.

She will be returning to Southern Crescent Technical College in the fall to pursue a degree in business management.
