Fredrickson inducted into Greek Honor Society

Krista Fredrickson, of Santa Clarita, has been honored for her leadership and scholarship at a recent Order of Omega society induction at California State University, Northridge.

The Greek honor society is a leadership organization for fraternity and sorority members, recognizing juniors and seniors who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, and involvement within their respective Greek organizations on campus and in the community. They also must maintain a high GPA. Only 3 percent of students from all colleges are accepted into the society.

Fredrickson, a senior studying business and finance, is the financial officer of her Gamma Gamma chapter of the Delta Zeta sorority.

The Order of Omega has been honoring Greek leaders since 1959, according to the society. Its purpose is to recognize Greek men and women who have “attained a high standard of leadership in their interfraternity activities.”
