At College Church on Sunday, March 14, Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) initiated 10 students, two resident members, and one honoris causa member. ODK is a national leadership honor society for college men and women.

The  Lambda Circle of ODK was established at Hampden-Sydney in 1924, and membership is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Selection of members is based on their influence as campus leaders to better campus life and to encourage high standards in all activities.

Initiates of the 2020 class Elijah Edwards ’22 and PJ LeBel ’21 who were unable to attend the fall ceremony participated in Sunday’s program. An outdoor reception at the home of Tommy Shomo followed the ceremony.
