Delta Farmer recently was named a Brad Henry International Scholar. The Woodward native is a senior at Northwestern Oklahoma State University and will spend a semester at Swansea University in Wales.
Among 10 students from Oklahoma’s regional universities, Delta Farmer, a Northwestern Oklahoma State University senior from Woodward, will spend a semester studying at Swansea University in Wales as a Brad Henry International Scholar.
The international study program, which was established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in June 2008, provides a $10,000 stipend for students to participate in a semester-long study abroad program affiliated with Swansea. Academic credit for these programs will be awarded by Oklahoma regional universities. Students are nominated for the program by their institutions.
“Serving as a Brad Henry International Scholar gives students the opportunity to gain new experiences and a practical understanding of today’s global economy,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson.
“We congratulate each of these students for this honor and recognize the academic achievements and leadership skills that will make them outstanding representatives of our colleges and universities.”
Farmer is studying psychology with a minor in biology. In the future, her plan is to become a licensed counselor. Farmer has been on the vice president’s honor roll and the recipient of the Delta Zeta academic honor. She also has been a member of the Red and Black Scroll Honor Society, Psychology Club and Wesley House.
