Arnett named board member of Order of Omega

Earlier this year, Makayla Arnett became one of only three MSU Greek organization students to receive a scholarship on behalf of the Order of Omega (OOO). Now, Arnett will serve and promote OOO in an even greater capacity. 

Arnett, a senior biomedical science/pre-med major from Winchester, has been appointed as the student member of the Order of Omega Board of Directors. She will be the only undergraduate student in the country to serve on the OOO board. 

The Order of Omega is a national leadership honor society for Greek student organizations. Membership in the OOO is limited to the top three percent of fraternity and sorority juniors and seniors on campus. Membership is based on excellence in academics, demonstration of strong character, leadership and service in four areas: service to the student's fraternity or sorority, service to the Greek community outside of the student's fraternity or sorority, service to the student's campus community and service to the student's surrounding community. 

Arnett is a member of the Gamma Omega Chapter of the Order of Omega, where she recently served as chapter president for the 2018-19 academic year and will serve as vice president for the 2019-20 academic year. She is also a member of Kappa Delta sorority. 

“Makayla is high achieving both inside and outside the classroom. She very much deserves the distinction,” said Stace Sievert, coordinator of fraternity and sorority life and student organizations. “She is articulate and knows the value of investing in the people around her, be they Best Buddies participants, her lab partners, her co-workers on the Campus Activities Board or Kappa Delta sisters.” 

Arnett said serving in her new position, she not only wants to help MSU standout and get recognition, she wants to use her passion for what OOO represents to help advance Greek life everywhere. 

“It’s all about scholarship, leadership and service, which is something I’ve always been passionate about,” she said. “On a personal level, I really want to make a difference in Greek life. I want to hopefully influence Greek life in a positive way.”
