The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of Northwestern College has voted to name the Athletic Field on the Northwestern Compus, De Valois Field, in honor of former Northwestern Trustee, Reuben De Valois of Orange City. Mr. De Valois, who retired from the Northwestern Board of Trustees three years ago, served Northwestern College as a member of the executive committee of the board for 25 years. This is one of the longest trusteeships In college history. He was chairman of the property committee during the period of greatest expansion of land and build- Ings and has been a generous supporter of Northwestern for I many years. Rev. E. Van En- gelenhoven, special assistant to the president for deferred giving, recently announced that Mr. De Valois has now presented Northwestern with a piece of farm property valued at $40,000 which Is located 7 miles from Holland, Mich. Born in 1899 at Boyden, Iowa, Mr. De Valois graduated from the Boyden public school when there were only 10 grades. He then finished his high school education at^ Central Academy- in PeU?.,- lowa. He taught In the country school near Boyden for three years, farmed for twenty years and when his health prevented him from continuing to farm, he moved to Sheldon and then to Orange City. Both of Mr. De Valois'sons, Roger, of Clinton, Iowa, and Galen, of Jefferson, Iowa, graduated from Northwestern. "At that time Northwestern was at its lowest ebb," said Mr. De Valois. The junior college had about 125 students. I decided I was going to do everything in my power to make Northwestern an outstanding Christian school." When Mr. De Valois began as a member of the board of trustees, he said, "Only Zwemer Hall, (now the administration building) • and Science Hall were on the campus. Heemstra (a boy's dorm) was in the process of being built. Northwestern has built or acquired nine structures since that time including a new learning center - Van Peur- sem Hall, Ramaker Library, Auditorium, dormitories, Playhouse, and Bushmer Art Center. Dr. Lars I. Granberg, President of Northwestern said, "Mr. De Valqis was Chairman of the Property Committee when Northwestern experienced its most expansive building program. He has been very generous to Northwestern. Here Is a person who has given Northwestern his time and his talent through the years. I'm very pleased to have our Athletic Field named De Valois Field in his honor.", t£ ''About the only thing that *riii5 older generation can do for the younger is to give them a Christian education and a Christian home. I don't have statistics to prove this, but wherever you go there are Christian businessmen, teachers, welfare workers, ministers .... you name it... who have graduated from Northwestern. Northwestern students do well," Mr. De Valois added. Little All-Amerlcan first team member Kelvin Korver Seven girls named to 1972 Festival court " Mr - d Mrs. Darrel Malenke ot Alton.
