More than 25 honors for academic achievement and leadership were awarded to juniors, sophomores and first-year students during the 4 p.m. April 17 Spring Awards ceremony in McDaniel Lounge. Students were also named to two prestigious leadership honor societies, Omicron Delta Kappa and Trumpeters.

Celebrating 20 years since it was established is the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants (MACPA) Outstanding Achievement in Accounting Award.  McDaniel Economics and Business Administration professor Susan Milstein was chair of the MACPA’s Educators Committee when she spearheaded the establishment of the award to reward student academic accomplishment and to spark student interest in the professional organization of certified public accountants.

Awards were also presented to outstanding students across the 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.
