Bel Air grad, classmate win audience choice award at McDaniel College Innovation Challenge for money-minded app

It’s not unusual for Renie Tsomos, a 21-year-old McDaniel College senior from Forest Hill, and fellow senior Marissa Funke, 22, of Long Island, New York, to have their peers ask questions or advice about personal finances or savings.
