Votek Tapped Into ODK Honor Society
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami distance runner Taylor Votek was one of four student-athletes recently tapped into the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society.
Votek joined diver Kara McCormack, volleyball player Savanah Leaf and women’s tennis player Monique Albuquerque as the newest members in one of the oldest and most prestigious honor societies at the University of Miami.
All students inducted into Omicron Delta Kappa must rank among the top 35 percent in their class and have completed at least 60 credit hours. All Omicron Delta Kappa members possess the following five ideals: exemplary character, responsible leadership and service in campus life, superior scholarship, genuine fellowship and consecration to the democratic ideal.
“We are very proud of the student-athletes tapped into ODK,” said Chris Doell, Miami Director of Athletics Academic Services. “It’s a tremendous honor, and it highlights their demonstrated commitment to excellence in all areas of their lives.”
A political science major, Votek carries a 4.0 GPA while contributing to both the women’s cross country and women’s track and field teams. Miami director of track and field and cross country Amy Deem is proud to see Votek receives such a prestigious honor.
“I am really happy that Taylor was recognized for such an outstanding honor,” Deem said. “We are always proud of all of our student-athletes’ success on and off the track.”
