Class Song
Hear, Alma Mater,
Our songs of praise to thee,
Thus, Alma Mater,
Shall it ever be.
In our mem’ries always,
Thy fond name ever dear,
Though our steps may wander far,
Our hearts are ever here

Years we have labored
‘Neath thy gentle guiding hand,
Us hast thou favored
As thy chosen band.
Now we rise to leave thee,
May thy fate in other hands
Show the love and service
Which thy noble name commands.

by Irene Allport


We have made an interesting observation that these words were sung to the tune that later became the official school song, “Hail to Our Colors”. Of course the words have been changed.
