04-19-2016

The Virginia Wesleyan College chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa—a national leadership honor society also known as The Circle and ΟΔΚ—was recently recognized on the 35th anniversary of its charter. In acknowledgement of the College’s April 5, 1981 installation, VWC President Scott D. Miller presented a congratulatory certificate on behalf of ΟΔΚ to Keith Moore, the College’s Omicron Delta Kappa Faculty Advisor and Vice President for Student Affairs (view photo). ΟΔΚ has more than 285 active circles at colleges and universities across the United States and recognizes not only academic achievement but also leadership across five phases of campus life: scholarship; athletics; community service, social or religious activities, and campus government; journalism, speech and the mass media; creative and performing arts. Virginia Wesleyan’s spring ΟΔΚ induction ceremony took place April 3 in Monumental Chapel, as 32 inductees joined an impressive list of current members made up of VWC Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and students (view photo). ΟΔΚ membership is regarded as one of the highest collegiate honors that can be awarded to an individual. In order to be selected, one must be in the top 35 percent of students on their respective campuses and hold a leadership role in one of the five areas of scholarship.
