In announcing the new display, AIC President James Rondeau offered,
"It's not because Dickelman founded the school that we are displaying his image. Instead, it's because a number of our staff and board members recently watched 'Palm Sunday Worship on the Screen,' and we could not help but notice the aging Dickelman's wrinkled, saggy face. It's a perfect example of something that is best viewed from a distance."
In hearing of the honor Dickelman sort of smiled, revealing additional wrinkles confirming the selection of his image for display.
