Daniel C. Holsenbeck was initiated into the Auburn University Circle in 1963. By the mid-1970s, he began writing about leadership in the Society’s magazine, The Circle. When Dan returned to Auburn five years after graduation, he began working with the Omega Circle. As his career continued, he was involved with circles at four other institutions.
Dan was eventually named province director for Alabama and Mississippi. He visited all of the circles in those two states during his tenure as a province director. As a province director, Dan also served on the Society’s National Council. He also was involved with the National Awards Committee for many years and chaired the Society’s 75th anniversary celebration. In the mid-1970s, Dan was one of the champions for the admittance of women as members of the Society, and in 1981, he received the O∆K Leadership Service Award. Dan retired from the University of Central Florida, where he served as the vice president for university relations.
