"Henien's Helpfulness Highly Honored at Awards"
Editors Note: Click on the picture below for the student leadership awards ceremony presented at the University of Pittsburgh's 34th annual Honors Convocation.
Shady Henien, a member of Delta Chi fraternity and the former 2007 Student Government Board (SGB) president was honored highly for his helpfulness as a leader receiving the Omicron Kappa Delta’s (ODK’s) highest award of excellence, the ‘ODK Senior of the Year Award for 2008’ on the snowy afternoon of Feb 29, 2008 during the 34th annual Honors Convocation held at the Carnegie Music Hall.
Henien was known for a lot of things during his four years at the University of Pittsburgh, most famously for bringing in the ten Panther statues so student organizations can decorate them and show Pitt’s school spirit. Henien was instrumental in breaking the tie of his Student Government Board (SGB) 2007 while serving as president.
Henien also started the annual ‘See you at the Cathedral’ prayer event where students from different organizations would gather to seek the Almighty Lord's help in life for the campus, city, country, etc. Last semester’s ‘See you at the Cathedral’ was also attended by Dean of students, Kathy Humphrey on that early morning.

Henien’s record of extracurricular involvement in activities while maintaining good grades has been applauded by many students.
“I cannot believe Henien did so many things”, said a student from an ‘Understanding Leadership’ seminar.
Henien was chosen among the other four nominees: Mia Dragoslovich, Sheila Isong, Alexander D. Plocki, and Rhajiv Ratnatunga.
Henien joins the acclaimed and undefeated Student Government Board elections slate of DRIVEN to become the third member to win the prestigious ODK Award.
Joe Pasqualichio, the former president of SGB 2006 who ran with Henien on the DRIVEN slate won the ODK Senior of the Year Award in 2007.
Elizabeth Blasi, the former board member of SGB 2004 who ran with Pasqualichio on the DRIVEN slate won the ODK Senior of the Year Award in 2005.
DRIVEN slate never lost in its election bid for SGB and now has three members from its slate to have won the ODK award.
