Dr. David Fenema

Professor of Theatre Arts

2012 Faculty Hall of Fame

For the past 28 years, Dr. David Fennema has impacted the lives of countless Cameron University students. He joined the faculty at Cameron University in 1983 and teaches numerous classes pertinent to the theatre. He has been called a “teacher’s teacher” and is known for his enthusiasm, whether teaching a class on multiculturalism or directing a theatrical production.

Dr. Fennema received the Harold and Elizabeth Hackler Teaching Excellence Award in 2009 and was heralded “as a noble example of what every other educator should aspire to be” by one of his colleagues, Dr. Justin Walton.

The results of his ability to bring student actors to their highest possible level of performance can be seen this February when his production of Moliere’s classic comedy, “Tartuffe,” comes to the University Theatre.
