WMC Heritage Society

Newly renovated Rembert House on the campus of McDaniel College.

The WMC Heritage Society was created to honor the past and embrace the future by preserving the history and traditions of the College since its founding as Western Maryland College. This is accomplished through

  • Engagement of alumni in the life of the College

  • Enhancement of Academic Programming

  • Endowment of funds to support the maintenance and preservation of
     campus historic buildings and to support scholarships for students

The creation of this society provides a way for alumni to honor the heritage of the College and serves to educate current and future students, parents, faculty and administrators on the traditions and history of the College.

Its activities have included the publication of the College History, “Fearless and Bold”, the book-signing tour with author Dr. James E. Lightner, and the restoration of the oldest building on campus and original home of College Founder Fayette Buell, now named Rembert House.

The Society has also fully endowed the WMC Heritage Society Scholarship, partially funded through the sales of Fearless and Bold.  The scholarship is awarded annually to a student, who through their campus and community involvement, exemplifies the mission of the WMC Heritage Society to honor the past and embrace the future by preserving the history and traditions of the College.
