Glassboro’s Mayor and Council Members held a dedication ceremony for the unveiling of a sculpture honoring former Glassboro Mayor Alvin Shpeen (1999-2002).

Glassboro’s Mayor and Council Members held a dedication ceremony for the unveiling of a sculpture honoring former Glassboro Mayor Alvin Shpeen (1999-2002), created and donated by Demountable Concepts, Inc. featuring a steel silhouette of the late mayor who was instrumental in bringing Glassboro and Rowan University together to revitalize the town.

“Former Glassboro Mayor, Alvin Shpeen’s dedication and vision created the groundwork for our revitalization and what has become the new standard in suburban living and a model for cities nationwide,” said Glassboro Councilman John E. Wallace III. “That is why this statue belongs in this location, directly across from his previous office -- to remind us, no matter how much we have to overcome, just what it is that leadership requires; just what it is that citizenship requires. Alvin Shpeen would have turned 87 years old this July. We do well by placing a statue of him here. But we can do no greater honor to his memory than to carry forward the power of his vision and a dedication to our residents.”

Rustin Cassway, President of Demountable Concepts states, “Alvin was a positive force in the town’s development and played a key role in our decision to locate our facility in Glassboro. We saw how nicely the town square has come together and decided it would be a perfect place to honor Alvin with a sculpture. The town agreed, and we worked together to make it happen."
