Three Greek leaders receive Order of Omega scholarships
Three Baker University Greek members were recognized for their leadership, academics, and service to the campus and local community. Hannah Greer and Michelle Henry, both members of Alpha Chi Omega, and Jack Mills, member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, recently received Order of Omega International Scholarships.
Order of Omega is a Greek honorary organization that recognizes just the top 3 percent of juniors and seniors in the fraternity and sorority community. The scholarship program was established to recognize academic achievements, participation and leadership in campus organizations, citizenship, and service to Order of Omega and the campus community.
“Through their time at Baker University, these students have been active participants in making changes across campus and being impactful leaders for fellow students,” said Josh Doak, assistant director of student life. “The purpose of Order of Omega is focused on six words: recognize, encourage, inspire, unity, scholarship, and create. Hannah, Michelle, and Jack are true examples of all those words to the highest degree. I have had the privilege of working with them, and it has been a true honor to see them grow. I am so proud of them and ecstatic that Order of Omega chose to recognize them for the amazing people they are.”
Henry acknowledges that this recognition is special.
“It’s something we just started again on Baker’s campus,” she said “It’s the first time we’ve been able to apply for this opportunity, and it speaks to Baker’s campus and the students that we have here.”
Greer agrees and is honored to be recognized
“We were the only three students selected in the state of Kansas,” Greer said. “I think it’s such an honor. To be a part of an organization and a school that seeks such high excellence means a lot.”
Mills is studying engineering at Kansas State University through Baker’s 3+2 preengineering program.
