Join us on Giving Tuesday, December 2, 2014, and invest in Leadership.

Tomorrow, Omicron Delta Kappa will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding at Washington and Lee University.  As the fall semester concludes, we invite you to celebrate our campus leaders and want to share some success stories:

Renato Guerrieri, the 2014 O∆K convention delegate from the Davidson College Circle, completed an internship with the Department of Experimental Therapeutics at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas this summer.  He will graduate from Davidson in 2015 with majors in biology and classics before starting his career as a physician-scientist.

Najaah Daniels, immediate past president of the St. John’s University Circle, recently completed a 2014 internship in the Office of the Vice President where she worked with the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. Najaah resumed her studies in rhetoric and public address at St. John’s this fall and graduates in 2015.

Seth Wolf, immediate past president of the Morehouse College Circle, is continuing his education at Johns Hopkins University this year, where he is pursuing his master’s degree in biotechnology.  While at Morehouse, Seth established the circle’s alternative spring break program with an Atlanta Rotary chapter that sent 20 students and other volunteers to Haiti for five years in a row.

These three outstanding students and many more like them attended O∆K’s 48th Biennial Convention and Celebration in Lexington, Va. this summer. Please enjoy this video that captured the wonderful young men and women who are members of O∆K.

 

Gifts last year provided 29 post-baccalaureate scholarships, speakers of national significance at the biennial leadership conference, leadership development programming through StrengthsQuest facilitated training, and circle support through regional meetings and improved technology. To learn more about investing in O∆K, I invite you to read more about our long range plan and learn more about the initiatives that will shape our future.

The Betsy and Bill Johnston Challenge will remain in place through the end of this calendar year. For each gift of $25 or more from a new donor, the Johnstons will match that gift dollar-for-dollar. What a wonderful way to celebrate the Giving Tuesday 2014.  Please feel free to read more about how your gifts may be used.  Make your gift today!

Thank you for your support of the leaders of today – and tomorrow.
