A Frankfort native was recently initiated into the Western Kentucky Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership society.
Sydney Vest was one of 350 new initiates from 17 universities during October.
Omicron Delta Kappa Society was founded in Lexington, Virginia, on December 3, 1914. A group of 15 students and faculty members established the Society to recognize and encourage leadership at the collegiate level.
The founders established the ODK Idea-the concept that individuals representing all phases of collegiate life should collaborate with faculty and others to support the campus and community. ODK's mission is to honor and develop leaders; encourage collaboration among students, faculty, staff and alumni; and promote ODK's leadership values of collaboration, inclusivity, integrity, scholarship and service on college and university campuses throughout North America. The Society's national headquarters are located in Lexington, Virginia.
