Principal Wilbert G. Mallett, who is standing on the steps of Merrill Hall, was affectionately nicknamed "Pa Mallett" by the Normal School students. He served as the F.S.N.S. principal from 1909 to 1940.

Mallett strongly believed in the value of a broad education, good morals and a healthy lifestyle. During his tenure at the Normal School, he carried on the tradition of assigning students mottoes to memorize, encouraged students to be active outdoors to stay healthy, and promoted the importance of civic responsibility and engagement.
