Three MSU students earned Order of Omega scholarships for leadership abilities and academic performance. 

The Order of Omega is a national leadership honor society for Greek student organizations. Makayla Arnett, a junior from Winchester, Tess Collins, a junior from Morehead and Kara Nicole Hugunin, a senior from Cincinnati, each received a scholarship on behalf of the Order of Omega. Each student is a member of the Gamma Omega chapter of the Order of Omega, as well as the Kappa Delta Sorority.  

“The Order of Omega is limited to the top three percent of the fraternity/sorority juniors and seniors on campus,” said Stace Sievert, coordinator of fraternity and sorority life and student organizations.  

Membership is based on stellar performance in academics, showcasing a strong character, leadership and service to the four areas, service to your chapter, service to the Greek community outside your chapter, service to the MSU campus and to the surrounding community.  

Typically two students of each chapter are allowed to apply for scholarships; the MSU chapter’s robust membership numbers and consistency with paying dues led to three MSU students that applied being chosen from a national pool of applicants,” said Sievert.  

Hugunin is graduating shortly and then is moving ot India to work with children.   

“[I’m] moving to India to do work with kids in children’s homes with Back2Back Ministries,” explained Hugunin. “I am very thankful for my sorority, Kappa Delta, for holding me to a higher standard and giving me women to push me to be the best I can be.” 

This scholarship covered the remaining cost for her schooling this semester while she interned in northern Kentucky.  

“We at MSU were one of a select few universities across the country able to apply for three scholarships,” says Sievert. “Even better, our three applicants won them, which was fabulous news.”
