Heather Lea Niece

Northwest student Heather Lea Niece has received a $1,000 scholarship from Delta Mu Delta, an international business administration honor society comprising institutions accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.

Niece, a native of Maysville who will be a senior this fall, is a finance (financial services option) major in Northwest's Melvin and Valorie Booth College of Business and Professional Studies and currently serves as an intern at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

She is one of just 42 students from 40 colleges and universities nationwide to receive a Delta Mu Delta Awards Program scholarship for the 2009-'10 academic year.

"I want to offer my warmest congratulations to Heather for her achievement is being awarded a scholarship from this prestigious organization," said Dr. Tom Billesbach, Booth College dean. "Her continuing University career reflects the high standards and academic excellence that Northwest students and faculty -- as well as the companies that hire our graduates -- have come to value and expect."

Eligibility to apply for DMD scholarships is granted to all students enrolled in business programs at schools where there is a Delta Mu Delta chapter. The society presents about 25 scholarships of $1,000, $1,500 and $2,000 each year along with approximately 20 $100 honorable mention awards. The application period begins in the fall and ends on March 1.
