The College has been notified of the passing of 1957 Furniture Design graduate Robert (Bob) Colleen. Encouraged by his wife Louise to attend Kendall, Bob became an award-winning furniture designer, rising in the ranks at Kindel Furniture from junior draftsman to vice president. He was involved in the leadership of the Furniture Designers Association and the Kendall board, and served as a teacher and mentor in the Furniture Design program. Kendall is grateful for his contributions to the college and the region.
