An assistant vice president at T. Rowe Price, Barrett Wragg is responsible for maintaining a network of financial services professionals across the mid-Atlantic and for increasing the presence of the firm among stakeholders. As a student at the University of Maryland, Barrett Wragg was a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa (OΔK) Honors Fraternity.

University of Maryland’s “Sigma Circle” of OΔK dates back 89 years, to 1927, when the six founders began selecting members of OΔK to join the new group. There are several noteworthy former members of Sigma Circle, all of whom were inducted either as students, faculty, or honorary members. These distinguished alumni include President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Vice President Alben W. Barkley, Navy Admiral and former Director of Central Intelligence Stansfield Turner, and Congressman Steny Hoyer, who has represented Maryland’s 5th congressional district since 1981.

Sigma Circle takes pride in its traditions, including its Annual Awards Banquet and its annual recognition of high school leadership, which it does by giving out a $1,000 scholarship to a selected incoming freshman. The fraternity also has a fountain in its honor on McKeldin Mall. All members’ names since 1927 are engraved in granite on the OΔK Fountain.
