Hi-Steppers

About

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 of Hi-Steppers. They love to see us come back and perform. It is a great time to reconnect with friends. There is no greater “sisterhood” than the Hi-Stepper family.

History

The 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. The Hi-Steppers Alumni Chapter continues to be involved in community projects and is able to partner 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.
