Major General Christopher R. Norrie is the Director, People First Task Force, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1, United States Army, Washington DC., Pentagon. MG Norrie was promoted to the two stars in August of this year (2022). Before that he was the commanding general for the 7th Army Training Command in Grafenwoehr, Germany.
General Norrie graciously offered to speak with our ROTC students on Friday, October 14th at 1:30pm in UMC room 247. He came into town to spend “Parent’s Weekend” with his daughter who is attending CU. General Norrie is a Distinguished Military graduate of Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania and holds two Masters Degrees in Business Administration from Embry-Riddle University and in National Security Strategy from the National War College.
General Norrie talked of his career in the Army and how he got to the position he is in today. He also spoke of his time serving as a Second Lieutenant at the beginning of his Army career. He shared with the students some of his successes and failures during those earlier times – when he was learning and leading for the first time. He gleaned some words of wisdom onto the ROTC students – to help them along their path to being an Army leader.
Thank you MG Norrie for your time and thoughtful words.
