Money raised will support scholarship named for Navy SEAL and Norwich graduate killed during mission in Afghanistan

Brian Bill gave his life for his country. The U.S. Navy SEAL and 2001 Norwich University graduate was one of 38 people killed when enemy fire downed the CH-47 Chinook helicopter he was on in Afghanistan in August 2011.

In his honor, Norwich and Bill's family, the Parry family, have held a charity golf tournament to support a scholarship in his name every spring since 2012. The coronavirus pandemic and ensuing campus shutdown scrubbed those plans, but the university issued the Brian R. Bill Memorial Giving Challenge in lieu of the tournament to raise money for the scholarship.

Adaptation, perseverance applied during coronavirus crisis will serve job-seeking graduates well, career adviser says

Over the last couple of months, many of us have felt like characters in an apocalyptic film, hearing things like, “We are living in unprecedented and uncertain times” and, “Hunker down and socially distance ourselves.” News reports broadcast surges in coronavirus cases, overflowing hospitals, and the plummeting stock market, further adding to people’s already potent anxiety.
