The Inauguration of Norval F. Pohl, Ph.D.

Description: Video recording of the inauguration ceremony for Norval F. Pohl, the 13th President of UNT (2000 - 2006), held in the UNT Coliseum on Friday, May 4, 2001 at 3:00 PM. The video opens with a silent flag processional, which leads into the procession of honor society delegates, faculty and staff to live musical accompaniment. The music heard during the procession was composed by Dr. Dennis Fisher, a College of Music professor. Music professor Lynn Eustace performs the national anthem, Eagle Ambassador Drew Wilborn offers the invocation and Chancellor Alfred F. Hurley serves as master of ceremonies, introducing the speakers. A performance of the finale of Beethoven's 9th Symphony by the UNT Symphony Orchestra and UNT Grand Chorus is featured halfway through the ceremony. After the musical performance, the investiture ceremony, where Pohl receives the UNT medallion, is conducted. Provost Dr. David Kesterson presents Dr. Pohl with the ceremonial mace and explains the symbolic significance of the UNT presidential mace. Then, Dr. Pohl speaks to express his gratitude and share his vision. After Dr. Pohl speaks, Dr. Hurley asks those in attendance to rise and sing UNT's alma mater, "Glory to the Green," led by UNT's Grand Chorus. A recessional concludes the ceremony.
