AN EVER-EMERGING LEADER

This past April, retired Army Four-Star General Gordon R. Sullivan ’59, longtime chairman of the Board of Trustees, handed the baton to Alan DeForest ’75. (See page 28 for a Q & A with the new chairman.) In the fall, General Sullivan stepped into his newest role in service to Norwich University—as the inaugural Distinguished Leader in Residence (DLR). An annual appointment with the opportunity to extend to three years, the DLR will maintain a presence on campus as well as represent Norwich around the country. His duties include lecturing on leadership and continuing to advance the reputation of Norwich as a leadership laboratory. General Sullivan demonstrates that a strong leader continually seeks new opportunities to serve—that a leader is always, in fact, emerging.

This past October, in his remarks to the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), General Sullivan told the crowd, “All I ever wanted to be was an American soldier.” He received the 2016 General George Catlett Marshall Medal for a lifetime of selfless service to the U.S. Army and the nation.
