ROCK ISLAND, IL (02/20/2012)(readMedia)-- Gaetano Iaccarino, a senior from Davenport, Iowa, majoring in music general and anthropology, was among 38 students initiated into the Augustana Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society founded in 1914.

Dean of the College Dr. Pareena Lawrence spoke and congratulated the students at a ceremony held Jan. 14 at the Butterworth Center in Moline, Ill.

Omicron Delta Kappa recognizes students who do excellent academic work (above a 3.4 GPA) and demonstrate leadership in co- and extra-curricular activities. No more than 3 percent of a school's enrollment may be elected into the local circle. Omicron Delta Kappa recognizes and promotes accomplishments in the areas of academics, athletics, service, social and religious activities, campus government, journalism, speech, mass media, and creative and performing arts.

Omicron Delta Kappa was founded Dec. 3, 1914, at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. Since its founding, Omicron Delta Kappa has initiated more than 300,000 members nationally. Augustana's circle started in 1962.
