Navy pilot and 10-year annual Partridge Society member Josiah Boggs ’15
NORWICH RECORD | Spring 2021
Now an MH-60S pilot stationed in Norfolk, Va., Josiah Boggs was a physics major from Trumansburg, N.Y., who joined the Corps of Cadets at Norwich and earned a three-year Navy ROTC scholarship following his freshman year. But a failing grade in differential equations the first time through set him back a full year.
“The Navy scholarship did not cover this, so I had to figure out how to pay for it. Norwich stepped in to help by renewing my original financial aid package with a little extra money to make sure that I was able to graduate and com-mission,” he says. “I give back to Norwich because I got the help I needed to cross the finish line and reach my goals. I now want to pay it forward and give what I can to help Norwich ensure others can get to where they want to be.”
