Omicron Delta Kappa welcomes new members

Fort Hays State University’s chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national Leadership Honor Society, welcomed 16 new members in the spring 2013 semester.

Omicron Delta Kappa was founded in 1914 to recognize outstanding leadership and involvement in extra-curricular activities as well as academic achievement. Nationwide, the organization has more than 300,000 members.

“We look for people who are active in different organizations or other activities such as sports or journalism,” said FHSU chapter president Allison Gough.
