"It makes me feel kind of special," said Hair. "I applied on a whim, and I didn't think I would get it. I feel honored and appreciated. The money is nice, too. It's just in time to pay for all my books for my last semester."
Hair is currently serving as Order of Omega President; Centenary Activities Board President; a Maroon Jacket; Chemistry Club Vice President; and a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society. She also previously helped lead Chi Omega sorority as Vice President.
The scholarship program of Order of Omega was established in 1985 to recognize academic achievement, participation and leadership in campus organizations, citizenship, and service within the campus and Greek community as well as Order of Omega.
The Order of Omega has awarded over $1 million in undergraduate scholarships since 1985. This year the Order had the largest applicant pool ever and awarded 147 scholarships totaling over $66,000 to individuals such as Hair.
