MidAmerica Nazarene University is proud to announce that it’s Delta Mu Delta, Epsilon Theta Chapter, and three Athletic Training majors received top honors and awards recently.

Honor Society Wins Top Award

Delta Mu Delta (DMD) is a business honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities. This organization fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through life-time membership. This year, MNU’s Delta Mu Delta, Epsilon Theta Chapter, won the Outstanding Chapter Award and was the top chapter out of more than 300 chapters worldwide.

“We celebrated the induction of new members and this [Outstanding Chapter] award at our annual awards banquet and induction ceremony,” said Lisa Wallentine, advisor. “Many dignitaries were present including Dr. Spittal, Dr. Jones, Dr. Rick Power – Board of Trustees representative, and Dr. Joni Adkins, Delta Mu Delta Board Secretary, who presented us with the award. The faculty and staff from the Department of Business Administration were present along with students who are current members, new inductees, and family and friends.”

Dr. Graydon Dawson, chair of Graduate Studies in Management, was awarded an honorary membership for his strong contributions to the field of business, leadership development and for his investment in the lives of the MNU student body.

Current DMD student officers are:

Michael Fast, President

Audrey Roth, Vice President

Savannah Hoit, Treasurer

Andrew Straker, Secretary
