Senior Sabrina Mullens Directly Admitted to OU's Honors Program
Regina High School senior Sabrina Mullens was one of only 35 students accepted into Oakland University’s Business Honors Direct Admit Program – the only standalone Business Honors program at a Michigan university. Applicants were required to submit a resume and write two essays, one of which Sabrina focused on her intent to major in marketing to help save local family businesses in her community and help them to adapt to today’s digital economy. Sabrina stated her career goal is to help these small businesses compete against their larger corporate competitors.
Sabrina currently holds a 4.01 grade point average and is a member of the National Honors Society. She is involved in several other organizations at Regina including RHS Ambassadors where she volunteers at Regina recruitment events, and STAND where she focuses on fundraising for homeless animals. She is an active member of Regina Players and De La Salle’s WAMS (Wigs and Masks Society) having been in over six productions between the two schools. Sabrina is also president of SADD, students against destructive decisions, and copy editor of Regina’s yearbook. Outside of Regina, Sabrina volunteers at St. Lawrence’s Vacation Bible School.
Senior Guidance Counselor and SADD Moderator, Amy Dulgerian, can personally attest to Sabrina’s commitment to service and leadership by working with her in SADD. “Sabrina Mullens stands out in many ways. She is disciplined, ambitious, persevering, and she has high integrity. Her success emanates from these qualities. Sabrina has been enrolled in a rigorous, academic schedule at Regina, partaking in many honors and Advanced Placement courses. She has maintained a 4.0+ overall grade point average, an impressive accomplishment considering her involvements in multiple extra-curricular activities and her job. Her diligent work habits and high motivation will be factors in her future success at Oakland University.”
Sabrina will be attending Oakland University in the fall as a member of the Honors College. She plans to major in marketing and minor in project management in hopes of becoming a marketing or project manager. Sabrina was originally drawn to Oakland University due to their curriculum and was also awarded the Distinguished Scholar Award, a scholarship awarded to students with a GPA of 3.90 or higher, an SAT score of 1260-1380, or an ACT score of 27 or higher.
Amy Dulgerian concluded, “Of all the students in the Class of 2019, I feel Sabrina is one of the most independent. Her leadership has greatly contributed to the positive climate of the school. We see her as an outstanding example to other students.”
When asked about this accomplishment, Sabrina stated, “Receiving direct admission to Oakland University’s Business Honors Program is extremely humbling. Only 35 students are accepted into this program, and I am honored that I was hand-selected to be part of the Business Honors Community. My academic achievements come from the challenging curriculum of Regina High School; the hands-on teaching and priceless education I have received from my school has provided me with a well-rounded resume, which was a catalyst in gaining acceptance into this elite program. My faith has guided me in pushing myself for academic excellence, while also aiding me in the growth of the woman I have become today. I am very excited to attend Oakland University and their Honors College, and I cannot wait to see where the next chapter of my life takes me.”
Everyone at Regina High School is very proud of Sabrina for her accomplishments and wishes her the best of luck next year at Oakland University.
