College's ODK honor society receives national grant

12/5/2012

Grove City College’s chapter of the Omicron Delta Kappa national honor society was awarded a grant in recognition of one of its members.

The ODK national office selected recent graduate Christen Vallimont ’12 as one of the top National Leaders of the Year in the area of Creative and Performing Arts. The award honors work on campus and in the community.

On campus, Vallimont was president of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) for two years and worked with the Swing Dance Club to create SWE’s Masquerade Ball. She played in the symphonic band and wind ensemble and helped organize the Mr. Engineering pageant and ODK’s Faculty Follies. She played varsity soccer and competed in varsity track and field, both for all four years. She graduated in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

The award grant was directed to the College’s Development Office on behalf of the honor society.

Grove City’s Beta Mu Circle of the honor society recognizes junior and senior students for scholarship, leadership and participation in activities.
