Seven Students Selected for Delta Mu Delta

Seven Oklahoma Baptist University students from the Paul Dickinson School of Business have been selected for membership in Delta Mu Delta, the business school honor society affiliated with the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.

To be eligible for the membership in Delta Mu Delta, undergraduates must be in the top 20 percent of their class and maintain a grade point average of 3.25 or above. The OBU students joining Delta Mu Delta are Kristin Michelle Pearson, a junior from Tulsa, Okla.; Mirko Vojinovic, a senior from Niksic, Montenegro; Craig Thomas Donnelly, a senior from Hillsborough, N.J.; Danielle Marie Wilhelm, a senior from Pasco, Wash.; Laura Elizabeth Cummins, a junior from Seminole, Okla.; Jessica Robin Walker, a junior from Lewisville, Texas; and Kristen N. Andrews, a senior from Cushing, Okla.

"OBU's outstanding education and ingrained push to achieve more than I thought possible has helped me immensely," Walker said.

In 1963, Delta Mu Delta was admitted to membership in the Association of College Honor Societies, an organization of nearly 70 member international honor societies whose objective is to maintain high standards for the recognition and promotion of academic excellence in higher education.

Dr. Keith Harman, professor of business, is faculty sponsor of OBUs Theta Kappa chapter of Delta Mu Delta, which will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2012.

Each year selected Delta Mu Delta chapters are given the "Star Chapter" Award which recognizes a chapter with the highest percentage of Delta Mu Delta members with GPAs exceeding national standards for DMD chapters. In 2008, OBU was named a Star Chapter.

"My expectation is that students who are members will continue their pursuit of excellence while at OBU and beyond," he said. "Membership in DMD is on a lifetime basis."
