Stepmother describes Norwich University leader’s intellectual blossoming and devotion to family, community and nation

From her front-row seat as Mark Anarumo’s stepmother, Dr. Felicia J. Ruff watched Norwich University’s 24th president develop as a leader, scholar and parent. She said she appreciates his academic achievements; she, like he, holds a doctorate. She said she also appreciates his parental devotion; he values his dad title more than he values “colonel,” “doctor” or “president.”

I dare you to do something
I'm waiting on you again

The lyric from Post Malone’s “Circles” that seeped through Wilson Hall’s walls and into President Dr. Mark Anarumo’s room (and consciousness) could have seemed a cosmic message. The COVID-19 pandemic had forced an in-room quarantine that kept students in their rooms except to pick up to-go meals and visit bathrooms. Norwich University’s community was on tenterhooks. The moment dared a bold action.

His career spun him around the world and marched him through academia’s apex. In June 2020, his map pin landed in Vermont, and Norwich University. On Wednesday, the Upper Parade Ground filled with his family, mentors and the university community, to see Anarumo officially inaugurated as president.
