NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University President Mark Anarumo and incoming Commandant and Vice President for Student Affairs Colonel Bill McCollough ’91 announced that Ryan Cranston of Trumbull, Connecticut, has been selected to serve as the 2022-23 regimental commander, the highest-ranking cadet of Norwich University’s Corps of Cadets.

Cranston, a political science major, is a three-year Army Advanced Designee ROTC scholarship recipient and is serving as the company first sergeant for the Corps of Cadets’ Cadet Training Company 1. He is also an active member of the Mountain Cold Weather Company.

Cranston has received the American Legion Award for Scholastic Excellence, the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, and is a perennial Dean’s List student. He served as a Student Government Association senator and was active in the Maroon and Gold Key Club.

“Ryan is a powerful leader with the vision, energy, interpersonal, and leadership skills needed to lead the Regiment next year,” Anarumo said. “I congratulate him and the other cadets considered for the prestigious position. We are truly fortunate here at Norwich to have such remarkable and gifted students ready and willing to lead.”

Regimental staff sections are assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company. Led by the regimental commander and the command staff, they perform administration, operational planning, logistics and other key functions.

Cranston and next year’s cadet officers and noncommissioned officers will be formally promoted April 22 during a Corps of Cadets Review with Change of Command Ceremony, which, weather permitting, will be on the Upper Parade Ground.
