While both of Clarenda Sue Norrod’s parents served in the military during World War II, she was especially inspired by her mother, Pauline, who served in the Navy’s WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) program at the Memphis Naval Air Station in Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up, Norrod was moved by the stories of her mother’s bravery and desire to serve her country, and as an adult she was her mother’s guardian on an Honor Flight trip for veterans to Washington, DC. As a teacher and writer, Norrod uses her love of history and science to educate people about the past and inspire them to make a great future. She also hopes to honor the sacrifices women and men made for this country abroad and at home.
Norrod received a BS in industrial technology education from Ohio State University. She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Epsilon Pi Tau, an honorary fraternity for industrial technology. After working as a technical illustrator, she became a teacher of fifth grade history and, later, of art. Norrod is also actively involved in STEM education in the hopes of inspiring future engineers. She lives in Jamestown, Ohio, with her husband and children.
