Twenty-five students were recognized during the 26th annual Glenn D. Dolence Leadership/Service Recognition Assembly, held April 5 at Missouri Southern.
Tori Page, senior chemistry/math major from Joplin, received the Leader of the Year Award.
Student Services and Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) at Missouri Southern sponsor the awards which are presented to graduating students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills on campus and who have made a difference in the areas of campus organizations, student employment, student services or athletics.
The awards are named in honor of Dr. Glenn D. Dolence, former vice president for Student Services at Missouri Southern, who retired from MSSU in 1996 after 27 years of service. He later served as mayor of Webb City, Mo., and has held a variety of other posts in the community.
