The Hi-Y Clubs are U.S. social clubs for middle school and high school boys that are affiliated with the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). The purpose of the clubs is “to create, maintain and extend, throughout the home, school, and community, high standards of Christian character.”

The well-established YMCA program aimed at school-aged children had its roots in early youth programs. The term Hi-Y was first officially used in 1927, but the YMCA had been active with youths since the 1850’s. Hi-Y stands for High School YMCA and was for boys only. Tri-Hi-Y (the female version) started soon after the Hi-Y program. “Tri” comes from the Triangle Girls Clubs. Now the Hi-Y program is co-ed.

Some of the members of the senior class were:

Norma Lee Brown – Pep Club, 1-2-3-4; Basketball 1-2-3-4.

Adeliah Davidson – Football, 1-2-3-4; Baseball, 2-3- 4; Hi-Y-4; Glee Club – 3-4; Pep Club-1-2-3-4; Basketball 1-2-3-4.
