PINEVILLE, Louisiana (LCUNews) — Abigail Shields, a senior business management and marketing major from Deville, has earned a $500 scholarship award from international business honor society Delta Mu Delta.
DMD awarded 66 scholarships nationwide this year to undergraduate and graduate students based on academics, leadership qualities, character, and service to the institution and community.
“She is an intelligent young lady,” said Kenny Holt, dean of Young School of Business. “Because of her work ethic and servant’s heart, she naturally gravitates toward leadership positions in the School of Business. The faculty awarded her the highest leadership award for the Young School of Business this past spring. She accomplishes what she sets out to do with excellence.”
Shields has a GPA of 3.92 and serves as the president of the LCU Chapter of Delta Mu Delta, Wildcats for Life and the Business Student Association. She is also the parliamentarian of the Student Government Association.
After graduation from LCU, Shields said she plans to earn her Master of Business Administration before heading to law school and eventually entering the political arena.
“I want to make a difference,” Shields said. “Politics and lawyers get a bad name in this country, but at the same time, we still need good ones, and God gave me a very strong moral compass.”
