Vermont's Norwich University Fetes 101-Year-Old Alum
The nation's oldest private military college is recognizing the lifetime achievements of a 101-year-old graduate who arrived on the Vermont campus when students at the Northfield school still trained with horses.
Mo Smith graduated from Norwich in 1934.
After graduation Smith served in the First Armored Division, retiring from the Army with the rank of colonel.
He went to work at Norwich in 1955 as an administrator. He stayed on staff until 1973.
Smith now lives in Northfield where he was honored Tuesday at his home by Norwich President Richard Schneider, who presented him with the Partridge Society Lifetime Giving Pin.
Smith will turn 102 next month.
