Creighton Student Attends Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Program

Nursing senior Paige Dixon represented Creighton’s Omicron Delta Kappa circle at the annual leadership program March 10-13 in Richmond, Va. “Campus Leaders Today, Community Leaders Tomorrow,” brought together 40 college leaders from around the country to prepare them for service as board members for nonprofit organizations. Students attended lectures and discussions and had the opportunity to meet with selected nonprofit board and staff members.

The Omicron Delta Kappa Society, Inc., the national leadership honor society for college students, recognizes and encourages superior scholarship, leadership and exemplary character. Ο∆Κ® was founded December 3, 1914 at Washington and Lee University, Lexington Virginia, by 15 student and faculty leaders. Omicron Delta Kappa was the first college honor society of a national scope to give recognition for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities. Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is a mark of highest distinction and honor. The society is now present on the campuses of more than 300 colleges around the country.
