MR. MERRITT C. NAUTSA
Thomas A. DeVilbiss High School will
benefit always from the diligent and
praiseworthy achievements of our princi-
pal, Merritt C. Nauts.
A broadminded educator
Respected for his loyalty
Remembered for his Congeniality
Admired for his democratic spirit.
The year 1937 was a significant year in the progress of DeVi1biss High School. In this year
came to fruition a campaign for the repaving of Upton Avenue after a long and sustained eifort
participated in by the student body under the leadership of the Prism staff. This project was pref
dicated upon proper drainage before the new pavement could be laid. The construction of the new
drainage system for the entire area surrounding the school is now nearing completion. We can
thus expect that in the immediate future the influence of the school will actually result in the very
great improvement of the neighboring district. Participation in projects of this sort indicates that
the youth of today can be expected to recognize and accept real responsibilities in coping with civic
problems. No age has ever been so confronted with social problems challenging the honest efforts
of young people to find a proper solution for them.
May DeVilbiss always inspire her graduates to accept the responsibilities of leadership for
worthy civic enterprises.”
