Stories on student outcomes, resilience, postgraduate life are featured

Zero in on economics and career outcomes in the Norwich Record’s summer issue, which is live online.

The quarterly alumni magazine’s new issue sports a pair of in-depth centerpiece feature stories by Norwich Record Editor-in-Chief Sean Markey. One story has an interview with Port of San Diego Harbor Police Chief and Fulbright scholar Mark Stainbrook ’91, who discusses value of community policing and building successful organizations and his Relationships, Ownership and Initiative model.

The other centerpiece profiles Mike Smullen ’76, who with business partner John Tipton, runs a $45 million, 220,000-square-foot medical marijuana growing facility in Apollo Beach, Florida, and will build a second, 300,000-square-foot growing facility in Palatka, Florida, later this year.

The issue also features stories about career outcomes from Earl Sherrard ’97 and Mark Lester ’92.

Sherrard discusses designing outdoor hard goods including snowshoes, water filters and stoves for backpacking and mountaineering for Mountain Safety Research and Cascade Designs. Lester discusses Alaska Aerospace Corp., which he leads as chief executive officer and specializes in space launch. The company developed, owns and operates the Pacific Spaceport Complex, a state-of-the-art spaceport on Kodiak Island, Alaska, that provides access to planetary orbital space for commercial and government interests.

Other stories cover reflections on resilience from bestselling author Dr. Angela Duckworth, thoughts on on-the-job learning in student internships from Career and Internship Center Associate Director Meghan Oliver, a description of “Norwich Women Kicking Glass,” a new seminar series to help alumnae plot careers and a look at research resources in Kreitzberg Library and Norwich’s Archives & Special Collections.

The articles await you.
