International Student to Speak at ONU's Honors Day

Apr 28, 2007
Oleksandr "Sasha" Kondratyuk, an LL.M. student from Kyiv, Ukraine, will be the featured speaker at Ohio Northern University's Honors Day celebration on Saturday, May 5. His topic for the 11 a.m. convocation in the university's gymnasium, will be "Living in the Globalized, Shrinking World: Challenges and Opportunities."

Kondratyuk is one of 11 young lawyers in the new LL.M. program at ONU's Pettit College of Law. The goal of this new program is to provide these young lawyers from emerging democracies with the training and tools necessary to implement law reforms that support stable democratic institutions and the rule of law in a free-market economy.

Following the convocation, a luncheon to honor students and their parents and faculty will be held at 12:15 p.m. in the Sports Center.

Also taking part in the Honors Day convocation and luncheon will be Elizabeth Drummond, a senior in history from Masury, Ohio, and president of the Honors Council, Christopher Lemon, a senior in biochemistry from Lower Burrell, Pa., and vice president of the Honors Council, and Stephanie Nuss, a fifth year pharmacy student from Unicoi, Tenn., and secretary of the Honors Council. The three members of Honors Council are elected to represent Ohio Northern's 41 honor societies.

Honors Day begins at 8:15 a.m. and runs until 5:30 p.m. More than 40 undergraduate academic departments and honor societies will present awards and induct new members to the more than 600 ONU students and their families who will participate in the day's events.

"Honors Day is a time for Ohio Northern's students and their families to celebrate their successes and accomplishments and to commit themselves to building their communities, towns states, nations, and world," says Dr. Anne Lippert, vice president for academic affairs."
