Omicron Delta Kappa Announces Circle Leader of the Year: Kendyl Lewis Recognized as the National Leadership Honor Society’s Distinguished Leader  

MILLEDGEVILLE, GA—Omicron Delta Kappa (OΔK), the National Leadership Honor Society, has named Kendyl Lewis as Circle Leader of the Year.

Lewis, who is studying economics and psychology at Georgia College, serves as president of the Georgia College Circle of OΔK. In 2018, she was recognized as the Omicron Delta Kappa  Emerging Leader of the Year, and she was inducted into the Georgia College Circle in January 2019. 

Lewis also serves as president of Swipe Out Hunger, an organization that provides meals to students struggling with hunger. In 2019, she interned with the Congressional Hunger Center in Washington, D.C. Additionally, she works with local community members to establish a system to recover food in local school cafeterias, which then can be sent home with food-insecure students. Lewis is co-founder of the GC Nudge Unit, which applies behavioral economic theory to solving problems in the private or public sector. 

“Kendyl is a remarkable student and leader,” says Dr. Harold Mock, faculty secretary of Omicron Delta Kappa and director of leadership programs. “She epitomizes Georgia College’s commitment to leadership for the public good. Through her work combating food insecurity, she is a model to all of us.” 

Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, was founded in 1914 at Washington & Lee University. OΔK recognizes and encourages superior leadership, exemplary character, and intellect and collaboration across the five phases celebrated by Omicron Delta Kappa: scholarship, athletics, community and university service, journalism and rhetoric, and the creative and performing arts. Members are expected to demonstrate responsible leadership and service in university and community life, superior scholarship, genuine fellowship, and dedication to democratic ideals. 

The Georgia College Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa received its charter in 2001. Since its founding, the GC Circle has been recognized with multiple national awards, including being named a Presidential Circle of Excellence and a Circle of Distinction.
