Tiffany (Brasby) Hunt, who graduated from Morningside College in May with a bachelor’s degree in education, recently was named one of five Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) national leaders of the year.
ODK is a leadership honor society that recognizes and encourages superior scholarship, leadership and exemplary character. ODK has about 300 circles – or chapters – around the country. Each circle is encouraged to send information about a local leader of the year to the national office, where they choose five national winners.
This is the third year in a row that a Morningside College student has been named one of the five ODK national leaders of the year. Hunt received a $1,000 graduate studies scholarship from the ODK Foundation. The Morningside ODK circle also received a $300 programming grant.
The leadership awards recognize five phases of college life – scholarship, athletics, service, creative and performing arts, and journalism/speech/mass media. Hunt’s athletic achievements, combined with her scholarship and community accomplishments, made her leader of the year in the athletic phase.
In addition to collecting numerous awards on the softball field, Hunt volunteered as the head coach for a local high school girls’ softball team. She focused her time as Morningside’s vice president of ODK on community service. As co-chair of the Intro the Streets event, Hunt led the effort to coordinate 2,500 collective hours of community service.
Hunt is the daughter of Paul and Sherri Brasby of North Platte, Neb.
