Directing the intramural program for interested girls at McKinley , the club coordinated and supplied officials, sports chairmen, equipment and manpower. Sponsored by the Aloha Golf Club, the girls held a huli huli chicken sale to benefit the Girl's Basketball Team. The highlight of the year occurred in May when the girls along with their adviser Mrs. Jane Schroeder took a trip to the island of Kauai. McKinleyites should remember seeing a group of students drenched in ketchup,oil and vinegar and masked in such ingredients as flour and confetti parading around the oval singing Christmas carols in November. They were the victims of the LETTERMEN'S CLUB unique and messy initiation. Bringing the varsity athletes together and promoting school spirit were their aims. Along with their enthusiastic adviser Mr. Neal Takamori and energetic President Eric Tokunaga, the Lettermen sponsored the canned goods drive for the needy people in November and supplied the manpower for the carnival. Cheering and exhibiting their 'Tiger Pride,' the PEP CLUB, under the advisership of Mrs. Anne King, supported the pep squad and the athletic teams. They strove to promote spirit, pride, and friendship among McKinleyites. A large club, NA PUU WAI HAUOLI contributed most of their time and knowledge to fellow McKinley students by helping them to understand more about school and getting involved with school activities. In November they all participated in a show for the Shriner's Hospital. They were very active on the boy's and girl's intramural basketball teams. When the carnival came around in February, they handled the T-shirt booth while funky music blared from their booth. During Easter they made the patients at a nursing home feel more jolly by making cheerful gifts for them.

Campus Disciples Pursue Religious Fellowship, Local and World Concerns Providing counseling and information to students on the living God and the teachings of Jesus, was the primary purpose of the McKINLEY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP CLUB. Through Bible studies and fellowship encounters, they brought deeper insight into religion to all its members. Activities included a Halloween party, picnics and an array of service projects. Senior Derek Lee served as president and Mrs. Rose Ho, as adviser. Lending their services to better the community, McKinley's LEO CLUB provided students with the opportunity to gain leadership, cooperation in work or play, and a chance to meet other Leo Club members from various schools. Members engaged in a wide scale of activities such as working amidst the smoke and fire of the charcoal grills to help in a fund-raising huli huli chicken sale for the Ala Moana Lions, washing and scrubbing cars to raise money for a Christmas party for the Deaf and Blind, and participating in the January District 50 Leo Club Camp at Erdman.

Service Minded Individuals Undertake Community Work Devoting much of their time towards performing services for the school and community, a female counterpart of the Key Club, were the ALOHA AINAS. In October, the girls performed a real service to the school by helping with the Miss McKinley Contest. During Thanksgiving, a schoolwide canned goods drive benefitted the Red Cross. During two Sundays in January, the girls washed cars at Randy's Texaco and donated their earnings of over $140 to UNICEF. Other activities included manning the saimin booth at the carnival, stuffing envelopes, and helping the Easter Seal Society on Lily Tag Day in April. One would never realize what an active club was until he joined the MHS KEY CLUB. The 20 members of this boys' service club, like the Aloha Ainas, contributed their services to the community and school. Under the leadership of President Arnold Fujioka, they maintained their consistency by having at least five service projects a month. Even before the school year began, Key Clubbers served refreshments to participants in the Rough-Water Swim off Waikiki. Other work included stuffing envelopes for the Aloha United Way and the Cystic Fibrosis drive, washing cars for Saint Francis Hospital, hanging pictures at city hall, assisting at a pancake breakfast for the Kiwanis, and helping at the Crater Festival in the scrip booth as well as clean-up. Christmas for the Key Clubbers meant bringing merriment and good cheer to others as they went caroling at Lavada Nursing Home and assisted in a Christmas party for the Convalescent Center. With so many service projects, the boys still found time to participate in basketball games among other isle Key Clubs. In January they sponsored the state-wide Key Club Convention at the Waikiki Resort Hotel. Under the advisership of Mr. Dennis Sakata and Mr. Ed Watanabe, this group was not only the oldest club on campus but the most diligent one. With uncertain beginnings at the start of the school year, the INTERACT CLUB sponsored by the Ala Moana Rotary Club, strove to serve the community as well as the school. With Adviser Mrs. Ella Tomita, President John Yano and the members began work in December. Combining with the Letterman's Club, they provided manpower at the carnival. A Valentine party at the Hickam Air Force Base's Top Four Club brought together Interact Clubs around the island. In March, donned in their best tennis shoes, the club set out to "Walk for Mankind", and later in the month, attended a three-day Interact convention at the Makaha Inn. Expressing their artistic ability, at Easter, they constructed baskets for the children at Shriner's Hospital.

Pep Squad Generates 'Tiger Power' for The Black and Gold Tiger Power for the black and gold was amply generated by the 19775-76 VARSITY PEP SQUAD as they actively supported the Tigers at various OIA sanctioned sports events. The cheerleaders, songleaders, drummers and pep coordinator gathered near and around the room of adviser Miss Gaile Sykes for frequent meetings and practices. Being on the varsity squad was more than selling ribbons and cheering at football games, the squad also coached class pep squads, painted banners to publicize upcoming activities and produced cheerbooks for cheering sections to follow. With the football games at school athletic fields and the new Aloha Stadium in Halawa, the "spirit bus" was organized by the pep squad to encourage McKinleyites to "join in the fun" by riding the bus to games. Because of the absence of the cheerleading contest, the squad attended the International Cheerleading Foundation Clinic in July along with other high schools to learn cheers originating from the mainland...among the unending list of activities of the Tiger squad.
