Constance Terry Norbeck ’82
The Alumni Service award recognizes alumni who have rendered the highest level of service to Davidson College. Through her dedication and willingness to serve alma mater, Constance Terry Norbeck exemplifies this standard.
When Connie came to Davidson in the fall of 1978, she came with an understanding of and a commitment to service. On her application for admission, she wrote, “On becoming committed to an idea or an institution, I give it my enthusiastic and loyal support. I feel this way for Davidson, and perhaps this would be my most significant contribution….I would hope to represent the type of student Davidson would like to have.”
As a student, Connie did just that. She was a history major and a member of Rusk eating house. She also participated in a tutorial program for elementary school students and initiated and coached Davidson’s first women’s lacrosse team. In her senior year, she taught a physical education course in lacrosse.
Connie graduated from Davidson in 1982 and has enjoyed a career in banking. She is currently a recruiting coordinator for Capital One in Richmond, Virginia.
Since her graduation, Connie’s contributions to Davidson have continued through her years of loyal and committed service. Her devotion to alma mater is evident through her 12 years of service as an Annual Fund class chair, eight years of service as president of the Richmond alumni chapter, and three years of service as chair of the Davidson Alumni Admission Program.
Connie also has served the Richmond community as a board member of the Museum of the Confederacy and through her support of the Virginia Home for Boys.
Because of her remarkable gifts of time, energy, and leadership that she has given to Davidson College, because of her loyalty and dedication to alma mater, because of her unselfish service to her community, and because Davidson is proud to claim her as her own, the Davidson College Alumni Association honors Constance Terry Norbeck, Davidson Class of 1982, with the Alumni Service Award on the occasion of her 25th reunion, this 28th day of April, 2007.
