Wasatch Academy

"Every day of the war makes us realize more fully that our nation is facing a long and terrible struggle for survival. We, the youth of America, are being depended upon to do our part, and education is that part."

The effects of the War were felt everywhere in the United States, even at a small private, co-ed boarding school in Mt. Pleasant, Utah. These effects, as well as the importance of student contributions on the Home Front, dominate the newspaper-style layout to the 1944 Wasatka – the annual yearbook of Wasatch Academy. Living in dormitory houses, much more akin to college life than high school, students at Wasatch obviously became very close as the many extensive signatures attest. What are some of the other methods in which the Wasatka yearbook editors state that students can make an impact on the war effort?
