Parker awarded Phi Beta Delta Scholarship

Annabelle Parker of Shreveport has been named as the first recipient of the Phi Beta Delta Scholarship Award. The scholarship was presented by Northwestern State University’s Eta Mu Chapter of Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars.

This scholarship was awarded for the Spring 2020 semester to support NSU students participating in international studies here on campus or in academic studies abroad. Parker is a junior accounting major in the School of Business at NSU and is attending the University of Alicante in Spain this semester.

Parker said she is looking forward to being immersed in Spanish customs and learning the language hands-on and admiring the historic sites found throughout Alicante.

“I aspire to push myself to new limits while living in Alicante and become a well-rounded and considerate business professional,” said Parker.

Dr. Sharon Joy, president and chapter coordinator for Phi Beta Delta, said she and chapter committee members are proud of Parker’s international endeavors.
