SOUTHEAST GREEK STUDENT WINS NATIONAL ORDER OF OMEGA SCHOLARSHIP

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 10, 2003 -- Stacy Brockmann of Okawville, Ill., a senior and member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority at Southeast Missouri State University, has been awarded a Patrick W. Halloran Scholarship presented by the National Order of Omega.

The scholarship award is valued at $500 is awarded to just 40 students across the country. Each Order of Omega chapter was eligible to nominate one member for consideration.

The scholarship, named in honor of past executive directors, was established to recognize scholarship ability, participation and leadership in campus organizations, citizenship and service to Order of Omega and the campus Greek Community. One of the tenets of the society's purpose is "to recognize those fraternity men and women who have attained a high standard of leadership in interfraternity activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment."

Brockmann served as treasurer of the Theta Theta chapter of Order of Omega at Southeast from December 2001 through last December. She also served her chapter, Alpha Chi Omega, as vice president of finance, and has held positions within the Greek community, including serving as a member of GAMMA, a recruitment counselor, and Greek ambassador.

Brockmann also has served the University as co-chair of the Homecoming Parade Committee, as a student orientation leader and Southeast 101 facilitator. She is a member of both the Accounting and Finance Club and Phi Beta Lambda business society. Brockmann has been recognized with induction into Phi Eta Sigma, a freshmen honor society; Rho Lambda, a national sorority honor society; and Order of Omega in November 2001. She also is in the University Honors Program and a recipient of a Regents' Scholarship and the Everett Deason Community Scholarship.

The Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in the fall of 1959 by a group of outstanding fraternity men, who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the University. The Order of Omega voted to become a co-ed organization in the spring of 1977. There are now more than 300 chapters in the United States with about 10 additional campuses that are petitioning the national organization for a chapter.
