The History of the Alma Mater

Cyrilla (Tellman) Doerhoff, Class of 1941, has a clear memory of writing the Eugene High school song along with friends and classmates Nadine Sanning, Doris Pendleton, and Joyce Bond. When asked about it by her son, Dale Doerhoff, she said they based it on a college alma mater but could not recall which one. Whether a faculty advisor assisted is unknown.

Mrs. Doerhoff and her classmates were honored at the Eugene High School Alumni Banquet on June 10, 2023. Over 120 attendees of this year’s banquet stood and sang the Alma Mater in unison, to commemorate the contributions of Mrs. Doerhoff and her classmates of 1941.
