2020 has brought challenges unlike any we have encountered before. Time and again, our alumni and friends asked, "How can I help?" You showed McDaniel students that although the road is unknown, they could always count on the McDaniel community to travel alongside them. Together, we established the Emergency Relief Fund and raised more than $100,000 for laptops, hotspots, and other critical needs. Together, we are outfitting classrooms with the technology needed to bring McDaniel to students who are unable to be on campus in the coming year. Together, we will ensure our students are safe, healthy, and able to continue on their path to success.
Together, we will light the way.
