Norwich University officials have named the new $1.6 million Cybersecurity War Room located in the recently dedicated Mack Hall the Thaddeus Buczko ’47 Cyber War Room in honor of retired civil servant and prominent Massachusetts Judge Thaddeus Buczko, in a dedication ceremony held on Saturday, Nov. 10.
During the Saturday ceremony, Buczko joined Norwich President Richard W. Schneider (pictured), College of Professional Schools Dean Aron Temkin, family and others to celebrate the honor.
“Ted has embodied the Norwich guiding value of service before self,” Schneider said during the ceremony. “With grateful appreciation for Ted’s service to Norwich University, the Mack Hall Cyber War Room is dedicated in his honor, with gratitude, by the Board of Trustees and the President of Norwich University.”
A native of Salem, Mass., Buczko graduated from Norwich University with honors in 1947 with a Bachelor of Arts in Government. An Army veteran, he served in the U.S. Navy in World War II, in the Korean War and retired as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. A graduate of the Boston University School of Law, Buczko was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1951 and served the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as Auditor and State Representative as well as the Salem community as Postmaster and City Councilor prior to his honorary appointment as Magistrate of the Probate and Family Court.
As a Norwich alumnus, Buczko has faithfully served as a member of the Norwich University Alumni Association, the Board of Fellows and the Partridge Society Board. In 1996, he received an honorary Doctorate of Public Service from Norwich University. In his enduring commitment to support Norwich University students, Buczko created the Buczko Family Scholarship and the Judge Thaddeus Buczko ’47 Scholarship to assist students with financial need.
