Forty-seven students and two faculty members were recently inducted into the Golden Crest Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa at Missouri Southern State University.

The initiation ceremony was held Oct. 29 in Billingsly Student Center’s Connor Ballroom. The society recognizes achievement in five areas: scholarship; athletics; campus and community service, social and religious activities, and campus government; journalism, speech and mass media; and creative and performing arts.

ODK is the national leadership honor society with membership based on exemplary service, leadership, scholarship and character. It was founded in 1914 and currently has more than 300 active circles at universities across the United States. Missouri Southern’s Golden Crest Circle was chartered in 1987.
