Dave Coleman Portrait Hanging

Photos: Terry Arsenault, 2003-April-14

It is an excellent likeness, and everyone thinks it adds pizzazz to the place.

Along with the portrait came a few wee "gifties" from the department chair, Peter Dare. Just to ensure that Dave remembers his roots, he was given a beach ball with the world portrayed on it.

He also received a dancing, whistling, drumming bear to keep him focused on his passion, drumming with the Fredericton Society of Saint Andrew Pipe Band. (And what does this award-winning band sound like? Click here to have a listen.)

In the tradition of outgoing department chairs, Dave also received a gold version of the Department's pin. This was yet one more opportunity to thank Dave for his stewardship of the Department from 1997 to 2002, and to wish him well in his new position as Dean of Engineering.
