Hi-Stepper Chapter

 

Homecoming

The Hi-Stepper Alumni continue our tradition of performing at the Hinds Homecoming football game each year. This is one event that everyone looks forward to, especially the current group. They love to see us come back and perform. This is a great time to reconnect with friends and what a great way to exercise! There is no greater “sisterhood” than the Hi-Stepper family.

History

The Hinds Community College Hi-Steppers are the third oldest precision dance team in the nation. In the 50+ years of Hi-Steppers, thousands of young ladies have experienced a sisterhood like no other. To continue the tradition, the Hi-Stepper Alumni Chapter was formed in 1983. Since their formation, this alumni chapter has been a very active group on and off the Hinds Campus.

A special feature each year is their participation in the Homecoming activities on the Raymond Campus as a "special guest performance" during half-time and it has become a crowd favorite with all the "young people." The Hi-Steppers Alumni Chapter continues to be involved in community projects and is able to partner with the current Hi-Steppers group. One community highlight is their participation in Santa's Toy Chest at WLBT-TV along with the current Hi-Steppers group.

In 1999, the Hi-Steppers Alumni, through numerous efforts in fundraising, established the Anna Cowden Bee Endowed Scholarship, honoring Mrs. Anna Bee, Hi-Stepper Director for over 50 years. Since reaching endowment status, the chapter has been able to award a full one year scholarship to a selected Sophomore Hi-Stepper. It is the hope of the Hi-Steppers Alumni Chapter to further the endowment so that more than one scholarship can be awarded each year in the future.
