The Black and Gold 1976Athletic Sportsmanship, School Spirit Encourage Tiger Pride
Wearing their gold with GAA emblem shirts, the GIRLS ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION distinguished themselves by providing opportunities for girls to participate in a variety of recreational activities. 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.
