Corbin Robinson
State and National President

E-Mail Corbin

Hello, Illinois Phi Beta Lambda! I was born in Alton, Illinois, and am proud to serve my home state! I began my FBLA-PBL career in 2009 at Overhills Middle School in Spring Lake, North Carolina. A living example, I am a strong believer in the motto “lifelong association.” In 2014, I relocated to Illinois where I served as a state officer and national candidate in FBLA. Currently, I am a Presidential Scholar at Saint Louis University studying economics and political science. As I am a virtual member, I have the ability to affiliate my membership with Illinois. I consider FBLA-PBL to be my passion and am always looking to tell the world about our association. In addition to State President, I serve as the Phi Beta Lambda National North Central Region Vice President. I invite you to reach out to me to discuss how PBL can Elevate Your Future!
