Locust native initiated into honor society

Gavin Hudson, a native of Locust, was recently initiated into the Virginia Military Institute Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society.

The Society welcomed 348 new initiates from 12 universities during October 2023.

Students initiated into the Society must be sophomores, juniors, seniors, or graduate/professional students in the top 35% of their class, demonstrate leadership experience in at least one of the five pillars and embrace the ODK ideals. Fewer than 5% of students on a campus are invited to join each year.

Omicron Delta Kappa Society, the National Leadership Honor Society, was founded in Lexington, Virginia, on Dec. 3, 1914. A group of 15 students and faculty members established the Society to recognize and encourage leadership at the collegiate level.
