Walter Smith ’57 has made news in another Record, the Caledonian Record of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. In April, he delivered the final lecture of the Osher Lifelong Learning spring semester, presenting on the “cultural requirements and peculiarities—light, temperature, humidity and air movement” of orchids. We are sure he had a good crowd.

Norwich English instructor, Glennie F. Sewell, appeared on the WNUB program “Norwich Odyssey” to discuss his work as a paranormal investigator and what it means to be “sensitive” to the spirit world.

Pictured at his retirement ceremony are Maj Chris Collins ’97, his wife, Tracey, and their daughter, Addison.

In an article released on Memorial Day 2017, the Darien Times recounted the career of Maj Chris Collins ’97, USMC,  as having reached the “height of his dreams.” Prior to his May retirement after 20 years of service, he logged more than 4,500 flight hours and 350 carrier-arrested landings. The Times wrote, “His decorations include two Meritorious Service Medals, three Strike Flight Air Medals, two Navy and three Marine Corps Commendation Medals with Combat Distinguishing Device, a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, and various personal and unit awards.”

Editor’s note: In the printed version, we misidentified Maj Collins’ branch as Air Force when it should have read Marine Corps; we apologize for the error and have corrected it here. We will also run a correction in the winter Record.
