Alma Mater

by Charlotte Purdy

“Hail DeWitt, our Alma Mater

Voices sound in praises of thee;

Honor, courage, truth and glory

Be thine to eternity.

Hearts are lifted high in gladness;

Blue-gold banners fill the sky,

We love thee, Alma Mater,

Even till the day we die.”

If you have attended DeWitt Public Schools, then you should know the Alma Mater by heart. It has been chanted for as long as we can remember, but do you know who the original author was?

That’s what we are asking YOU, our readers! We want to hear from you and find out who originally wrote our Alma Mater. Send us an email at if you have any information on the author, or give us a call! We’d love to hear from you.
