Madison McDonnell, a senior management/human resource major from Granby, was recently awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Delta Mu Delta, the international honor society in business.

“I applied for the board of governors scholarship, which required me to include information about my volunteerism, the things I’ve been active in on campus as well as references,” she said. “I was very flattered to receive it. Financially it was helpful with school costs.”

McDonnell, who was inducted into the campus chapter of Delta Mu Delta in the spring, will graduate in Spring 2017. Delta Mu Delta promotes higher scholarship in training for business and to recognize and reward scholastic achievement in business subjects. To be inducted in the Lambda Gamma chapter at Missouri Southern, students must be business majors and in the top 20 percent of their class. Dr. Jonathan Adongo, assistant professor of economics, is the adviser for the chapter.
