In the past few weeks, the College of William and Mary, where he went to law school, laid two big awards on him.
This afternoon’s e-mail says that now Virginia Military Institute, the senator’s undergraduate alma mater, is saluting him as well.
The board of trustees of the VMI Foundation has announced it will bestow its Distinguished Service Award on Norment, VMI ’68. The award is the foundation’s highest honor, and it is presented to those alumni and friends of the Institute who have displayed exemplary dedication to the Institute and its mission and worked diligently on behalf of the foundation and VMI.
Norment served as a trustee of the foundation from 1997 to 2005. He will receive the Distinguished Service Award and address the Corps of Cadets at VMI’s annual Founders Day Convocation on Nov. 9 at Cameron Hall.
