Engineering major Mateo Villa ’20 is the recipient of a McKee “Men of Action” Scholarship, a $2,500 award for his commitment to outstanding service to the community, presented annually by Delta Sigma Phi.
According to the Delta Sigma Phi website, “the McKee Scholarship program is available thanks to the generosity of the late Hensel McKee, Washington ’30 and his wife Jeanette McKee. The Scholarship is available to undergraduate members and alumni members who are pursuing graduate degrees. To be eligible, applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, be initiated members of Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity in good standing, and be enrolled at a college or university during the academic term.”
Last year, Villa was awarded the McKee “Men of Excellence” Scholarship for exceptional academic performance.
In addition to Delta Sigma Phi, Villa is a member of Oglethorpe’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams and is currently interning for a second summer at the Naval Air Warfare Center, Training Systems Division in Orlando.
