Throwback Thursday: 
The College seal has been adopted for the Salisbury Normal School which is a symbol of the State, the Shore and the School. The loblolly pine is characteristic of the Eastern Shore; the boat represents the fishing industry, the plow and farm products the agricultural interests of the State, the strawberry bed in the lower left foreground represents a leading industry of the Eastern Shore; the sun at its zenith signifies the educational service which it is hoped the school will render; the Maryland shield signifies that the school is a State institution. In 1926, the College seal was designed by an honor student, Miss Grace Hallam, in competition.
