Norwich has been without a doubt the foundation upon which I have built my career and life. The things that I learned at Norwich—whether it’s the Honor Code, whether it’s perseverance, whether it’s the requirement to look out after each other, or whether it’s leadership training—all have benefited me and made me who I am today.
