NAMES IN THE NEWS : Frat to Honor Costner, Sessions


Actor Kevin Costner and FBI Director William Steele Sessions are being honored by a national collegiate fraternity.

Costner, the star of "Field of Dreams" and "The Untouchables," is expected to be one of an estimated 500 delegates attending the special centennial conference of the nationwide collegiate fraternity in Syracuse Aug. 8 to 12.

He and Sessions, who does not plan to attend, will be given "Delta Chi of the Year" awards.

Costner "was a marketing major at Cal State Fullerton, but he hated it and went into acting," said Jeff Albright, Delta Chi national programming director.

The film star has retained his allegiance to his fraternity and was the speaker at the 1988 convention, Albright said.
