MICUA Matters Spring 2018
On March 30 at the Annapolis State House, McDaniel College celebrated the 150th anniversary of the signing of its charter by then Governor Thomas Swann. The Maryland Senate and House of Delegates recognized the College from the floors of both houses. Earlier in the day, representatives on behalf of Governor Larry Hogan, Attorney General Brian Frosh, and Comptroller Peter Franchot delivered citations and certificates of achievement honoring McDaniel.
The College honored one of its own, Senator Ed Kasemeyer ’67, with a citation on the occasion of his retirement after nearly three decades of service in the State legislature. Jim Lightner, College historian, trustee, professor emeritus, and alumnus, discussed the College's history, referencing Fearless and Bold, the McDaniel/Western Maryland College book he authored, and the “150 Years on the Hill” anniversary exhibit on display January 10 through March 30 in the Miller Senate Office Building in Annapolis.
The celebratory reception, hosted by Senator Justin Ready, found students, faculty, alumni, staff, and State officials cheering McDaniel on to another 150 years.
