The H1story Of Abbot Penmngs Abbot Pennings High School has a long and proud tradition. The school was founded in 1898, as St. Norbert's High School. It was the first educational institution established by the Norbertine Or- der in the United States. From 1898 until 1959, St. Norbert's High School was located on the college campus, in what today is Sen- senbrenner Hall. During this period, St. Norbert's High was a col- lege prep board school. In 1959, the location and the name of the school changed. St. Norbert's High became Abbot Pennings High School, renamed in honor of The Right Reverend Bernard H. Pennings. Abbot was the founder of Abbot Pennings School, as well as St. Norbert's College, Archmere Academy lClaymont, Delawarel, Bishop Neuman High School fPhiladelphia, Pa.l, and Premontre High School. The pre- 1+ sent site of Abbot Pennings was formerly that of public high school for the West DePere area, When West DePere built a new school, Nicolet High was purchased by the Norbertine Order. A drive for funds to enable the Order to purchase the build- ing and land was undertaken by the four parishes of DePere. Since the building and land was purchased by the parishes, the Order supplied the necessary funds for renovation and modernization, From its founding in 1898, enrollment has increased many times over, In 1943, there were approximately 80 young men enrolled. When the name was changed in 1959, the enrollment had grown to 180 students. This year, there are 400 students enrolled at Ab- bot Pennings High School. The most recent addition to the school's physical facilities was the purchase of the Congregational Church by the Order in 1967. This building has been converted into the Music sently houses the Band and Chorus, as well as serving as Yearbook headquarters. Why does Pennings prosper when many other parochial schools are on the verge of collapse? Why are parents willing to spend the money to send their kids to Pennings? Many people lespecially parentsl feel that our school has a little Nicolet High, the ' Hall, and pre- something extra to offer over other area schools. That little extra - ' V is due mainly to the spirit and dedication of our -L faculty. Pennings also hopes to build strong young men who will support and live the Christian ideals upon which our school is founded. In terms of sports, Pennings has its share of well-deserved succes- ses. There have been some slack periods, but for the most part Pennings has put fine teams out on the field, court, and track. In the past four years, the football team has gone to the state play- offs twice, taking the title in 1971. The Squire duffers have taken conference the past two years. The basketball team has gone down to state three out of the past four years, finishing well each year. Spirit is another reason why people go to Pennings. We have a cer- tain togetherness and unity that few other schools have. This can be seen by the fan support our teams get whether they win or lose. Some students contend that their parents send them to Pennings so that they don't have to tell their kids how to dress and wear their hair. Some students feel that the hair and dress codes are an intru- sion on their private life, but it is kind of interesting to note that there never was a dress code until the early sixties when the stu- dents decided to have a dress code to distinguish themselves from the other schools. Pennings is a unique school, which has a lot to offer. Some may like it, some may not, but Abbot Pennings is an experience which all of us will remember as "the good old days,"
