Alma Mater

Hershey Industrial and Milton Hershey School versions

“All hail to thee, Milton Hershey; thy loyal sons are we,” are the stirring opening words of the original 1930s version of the school alma mater. In 1956, staff member W. Purnell Payne wrote the music for an updated version, while fellow staff member Virgil Alexander wrote the lyrics.

Read the original lyrics here.


The Alma Mater for the Hershey Industrial School was written by Robert Evans ’32 and sung to the “Anchors Aweigh” tune. It was sung at the Old Senior Hall dedication in 1934, among other instances.

Watch students sing the alma mater.
