Generous donation spurs naming of NAB (updated)

The wait for the naming of the King’s New Academic Building is finally over.

The wait for the naming of the King’s New Academic Building is finally over.
Over a decade after its completion, the NAB will be named in honor of King’s Alumni and current Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter, following a generous personal donation from the NDP leader.
As of today, the building will be known as “Dexter’s NAB.”
Dexter, who attended the university in the 1970s, holding various positions on society executives including the KSU, felt that it was his duty to give something back to the school that “showed [him] how to be a man among men and leader among philosophers.”
The undisclosed sum will go towards much needed repairs to the Bays, the President’s Lodge and the Pit.
King’s professor Gordon McOuat said he is “very interested to see how this goes.”
UPDATE: Happy April Fools’ Day!
