OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego's Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society, received the Circle of Distinction Award for 2001-02, the national society announced recently. Only 13 of the 279 circles nationally received the honor.
The award recognizes that "we are strong in numbers, strong in activities, that we have a presence on the campus, that we as a circle adhere to the standards that ODK sets for us and uphold ODK ideals," said Robin McAleese, assistant dean of students who was cited as ODK faculty secretary of the year at the society's national convention.
Katie Maxwell, admissions counselor and adviser to SUNY Oswego's ODK organization, said the group's activities included making Thanksgiving baskets for families, volunteering at the local soup kitchen and running bingo at nursing homes, among other community service work.
Founded in 1995, Oswego's circle of ODK inducts 15 to 20 students each year.
