ABERDEEN, S.D. Northern State University student Haley Wenger is the recipient of a $2,000 Delta Mu Delta Board Scholarship.

Delta Mu Delta is the business honorary society affiliated with the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), which is the accreditor of the NSU School of Business.

Wenger, a senior business management major with a human resource management minor, is one of 66 Delta Mu Delta scholarship recipients this year.

“I am so excited for her,” said Dr. Sal Villegas, faculty advisor for Northern’s Delta Mu Delta chapter. “She took home one of the major $2,000 scholarships, which definitely shows that our business students cannot only compete, but that they are the best of the best.”

Originally from Gregory, S.D., Wenger has also won multiple Phi Beta Lambda (Business Club) State Leadership Conference Awards, as well as numerous TRIO awards. She is also the recipient of a 2020 ASBSD/Governor's Academic Excellence Award.

“I chose to attend Northern because of the welcoming and knowledgeable professors within the School of Business,” Wenger said, “so my favorite aspect of NSU is the true academic, campus and community support that students receive!”
