"The year 1939 is one of very much importance in the lives of the people, and particularly
the young people of school age, in De Pere and vicinity. It is important as it marks the com-
pletion of a new building to be used for high school purposes. The building was made possible
by hard work and splendid cooperation on the part of the people of this city together with the
city council and the board of education.
This new and modern building will make possible a better education for the young people.
It has enabled those in charge to broaden the scope of courses offered and thus give students a
wider selection which enables them to meet individual needs and desires. In addition to offer-
ing a wider selection of courses, it is now possible to greatly broaden the scope of the Various
courses. Modern and better laboratories greatly add to the work to be offered in science. Pub-
lic speaking and music rooms also make it possible to add to the content and improve the teach-
ing in these subjects. Other improved facilities also add greatly to the possibilities of doing
better work in the regular academic fields. The possibilities in the field of manual arts and
home economics have been greatly extended by the fine new quarters provided.
The new auditorium not only fills a long felt need so far as regular school work is con-
cerned but it also offers a highly desirable place for community activities, outside the regular
All in all, De Pere has a school plant of which its citizens can well be proud. The mem-
bers of the faculty pledge themselves to do their part to use these splendid facilities in such a
manner as to give the young people the best training possible for life."

BOARD OF EDUCATION: Mr. T. J. Mc Glynn, Mr. Herbert Erancken, Mr. Carl Scott, Mrs.
Lydia Klaus, Mr. Herbert J. Smith, Mr. Clifford A. Osen.
Powers Behind The Scene
Countless hours were spent by members of the Board of Education in solving the numer-
ous problems which arose in the course of the planning and construction of our new building.
Difficulties which might have discouraged a less determined group were faced with sound
reasoning and good judgment in order to give us the fine building which we now have.
The problem of finances was the lirst to be considered, and it was the school board who
had to solve it. They appealed to the city council for a bond, and being assured of this money
they applied to the P. W. A. for federal aid. After this grant was made, the Cook property
which was part of the grounds now occupied by the new building, was purchased and the house
was later sold and removed.
The next step in the process was the selection of an architect who worked with the board
in drawing up the plans. Upon completion ofthe plans, bids were accepted on all phases of
the work, and contracts were awarded to the lowest bidders.
The work of the board didn't stop here since they had to maintain continual contact with
the architect and inspector during the period in which the building was under construction.
Their goal was reached on January 17, 1940, when the new building was formally dedi-
cated and opened for public inspection.
The De Pere Board of Education is comprised of Mr. Carl G. Scott, presidentg Mrs. Lydia
Klaus, secretary and treasurer: and the Messrs. Herbert J. Smith, Clifford A. Osen, and Herbert
