Moravian College Student Named Leader of the Month

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)— Moravian College student Borko Milosev was named Outstanding Leader for September by Omicron Delta Kappa, the school’s Leadership Honor Society. Milosev was recognized for his impressive academic achievements, extensive campus involvement, and possession of strong leadership skills.

Milosev played an important role throughout Freshman Orientation in August, especially during the Common Reading Program. Over the summer, students read The Hemingway Book Club of Kosovo which discusses the war between Albanians and Serbians as well as the NATO bombings of Kosovo in 1999. The author shares her experiences teaching English to Albanians in a war torn country, and her portrayal of Serbs is not a positive one. Milosev, a Serb himself, planned and presented a program to the freshman and faculty to show them a complete picture of the situation. In addition, he was instrumental in bringing Dr. Michael Parenti to campus on September 24. Parenti provided yet another perspective on the conflict. Milosev’s efforts helped create a unique opportunity for first-year students to look at a complex situation from multiple perspectives.

A plaque recognizing Milosev and future “Leaders of the Month” will be hung in the lobby of Prosser Auditorium in the Haupert Union Building.
