A&B Business Growth Scholarship at NAU

May 29, 2019


A&B Business Solutions is happy to be helping South Dakota students at National American University. Dennis Aanenson, President of A&B Business Solutions, announced the sponsorship of a NAU Foundation scholarship for NAU business students in South Dakota. Two (2) $1,000 “A&B Business Growth Scholarships” will be offered each term for the next three years, eventually supporting 24 exceptional students. Recipients will also be considered for internships and/or employment with A&B Business Solutions. Students are able to apply at:

The first two recipients are: Ms. Aimee Lewis and Mr. James Neal.

Message from Ms. Aimee Lewis:
"Dear Dennis Aanenson, President of A&B Business Solutions,
        I am writing to thank you for being a generous, scholarship donor. I recently received the NAU Foundation’s A&B Growth Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00. I was and am still very happy and appreciative for having been selected as the recipient of this scholarship. This is now the second scholarship I have been awarded from A&B Business Solutions. Therefore, thank you so very much for your continued donations.
      I am currently pursuing an MBA with an Emphasis in Human Resources. My ideal career entails working in the field of Human Resources; however, other business-related fields are not opposed to. At this time, I am taking a Financial Management course and plan to graduate this Fall of 2019.
    By awarding me the NAU Foundation’s A&B Growth Scholarship, you have significantly lightened my financial burden that most college students bear, and this allows me to focus more on learning. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.


Message from Mr. James Neal:
“Mr. Dennis Aanenson, 
I thoroughly appreciate your scholarship opportunity. Me and my family will benefit greatly on top of my education. I have never won something like this before and it is purely motivational and gives me the extra drive that I was yearning for to work towards that professional I aim to be in the future. Thank You again so very much."


The Summer 2019 A&B Growth Scholarship recipients have been selected as well.
Rachael R. and Mr. Garran H. have received the scholarship for Summer 2019. As the terms read, they will receive their scholarship in two $500 disbursements, to begin in Summer 2019. Both are pursuing business degrees. Rachael is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Intelligence Management and Garran, who is enlisted in the Air Force, is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in management. Both reside in South Dakota.

Thank you from NAU:
“Thanks to charitable partner A&B Business Solutions for creating a great new scholarship opportunity for National American University business students in South Dakota. Over time 24 deserving students will be awarded the A&B Business Growth Scholarship. Thank you!” - 
Tamie Hopp, Director of Alumni & Foundation Services

A&B is pleased to be a part of all the recipients’ education and wishes them all the best in pursuing their careers.
