Douglas M. Todd

Douglas M. Todd was called as principal in 1899 and served in that position until 1901. During that time he built the academy into a high school. Elementary students could attend local grade schools, but no high school existed in Rexburg at the time.

Principal Todd once said, "This school will yet grow and surprise the world with its great men and women, because it was conceived in righteousness and dedicated to the service of God."
