National dental society inducts five students
Receiving certificates of distinction during the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) honor society's 100th anniversary awards banquet earlier this month are, from left, Keith Klans, Matthew Foster, Kristen Douglas, Lynsey Cumberland and Meagan Blackman.
Founded in 1914, the national dental honor society encourages and develops a spirit of emulation among students in dentistry and recognizes those who shall distinguish themselves in a high grade of scholarship.
Those honored at the banquet were elected by a minimum two-thirds vote of the OKU faculty membership. Those eligible must be in the top 25 percent of their class. The graduating dental students will be recognized at Commencement by wearing an OKU stole. (Enlarge Photo)
