Just a week after Lookin’ at Lucky nosed passed a field of twelve to win this year’s Preakness, graduating seniors, 444-strong, at McDaniel College posted their silks to strut their academic achievements. Silken cords encircling their proud necks ranged from the McDaniel green and gold to an elaborate combo of braided red-white-black for Pi Sigma Alpha (Political Science and Government) to pink and silver for Beta Alpha Chi (Music honor society). With over 20 honor societies including Phi Beta Kappa, and nearly one in four seniors graduating with Latin honors, the seniors stretched their necks outward to spy family and friends who cheered them over to the finish line.
