Christian Meza, Utah ’22, graduated in May 2021 from the University of Utah and is a member of the Utah Alpha Chapter of Phi Delta Theta. As an undergraduate, Christian held many leadership positions in the Fraternity including recruitment chairman, historian, and pledge class social chairman, along with becoming an Iron Phi.
Filled with hard-work and steadfast dedication, Christian has made a concrete impact in the nonprofit space through the Folds of Honor Nevada Chapter that he founded alongside his mother, Pamela. After losing his father in high-school due to a PTSD heart-attack, the local Folds of Honor Chapter reached out to Christian and his family to offer financial and emotional support. The National Folds of Honor organization gave Christian the opportunity to go to college debt-free, and since this gesture, Christian has made it his lifelong goal to give back to the organization. Over the past two years, Christian has traveled all over the United States sharing his story and inspiring others to raise awareness for the cause. After raising over $30,000 at his inaugural event, Christian has just begun his journey in making a difference for the surviving dependents of the fallen military heroes.
Christian is an avid skier, golfer, and shooter, loves to travel, and enjoys playing chess in his free time.
“Joining this bond of brothers has grown into lifelong friendships. Several years out of school, we still vacation together, frequently stay in touch, and have even gone into business together. My experiences in this Fraternity will resonate with me forever, and I will always strive to become the greatest version of myself!”
