OCT. 3 DEDICATION SET FOR REMODELED McCANNEL HALL
The newly remodeled McCannel Hall, UND's student services building, will
dedicated Friday, Oct. 3, during Homecoming '97. President Kendall Baker
preside at the ceremony, set for 3:30 p.m. in front of McCannel Hall (in
lobby in case of inclement weather). Joining him on the podium will be
Gordon Henry, vice president for student affairs; Jim Poolman, student
president when the original project funding was approved; Annie Claesson,
current student body president; and Cassie Gerhardt, former student
and longtime McCannel Hall building committee member. All are invited to
attend; a reception and tours will follow the ceremony.
The completion of the student-financed remodeling begins a new chapter in
structure's history of four decades of service. The structure was built
1957 as the state's rehabilitation hospital and enlarged in 1962; it was
in honor of Dr. Archie McCannel (1879-1959), a prominent Minot physician
promoted rehabilitation services throughout North Dakota and also served
the State Board of Higher Education. The University acquired the
for student services use when the rehabilitation hospital moved to new
facilities in the Grand Forks medical park in 1974. Students assumed a
role for development of McCannel Hall by repeatedly voting to assess
themselves fees to finance remodeling. In recognition of the services
there and student body's willingness to share the costs, President Thomas
Clifford officially designated McCannel Hall as UND's student services
building in 1984. The extensively remodeled and enlarged McCannel Hall
dedicated at the upcoming ceremony was made possible by the action of the
Student Senate in 1992, when it voted to increase the fee to $15 per
for 20 years. -- Peter Johnson, Media Relations Coordinator, University
