Celebrating 20 years since it was established is the Millard Milburn Rice Non-Fiction Writing Prize. A writer, historian and banker, Rice was awarded an honorary bachelor’s degree in humanities on his 100th birthday in 1994. He did not graduate with his class due to serving in the Army and was ever grateful for his years spend on the Hill.
Awards were also presented to outstanding students across the academic disciplines, including Art, Biology, Chemistry, Communication, Mathematics, Physics, and Sociology.
Omicron Delta Kappa is a national leadership honor society which recognizes achievement in one of the following areas: scholarship, athletics, community service, social/religious activities, campus government, mass media, and the creative and performing arts. The Trumpeters is a McDaniel leadership honor society that recognizes exemplary qualities of leadership, integrity, and sincerity.
Four members of the Class of 2014 were also recognized for their induction into McDaniel’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
