Photograph was edited for publication purposes The Hi-Y Club was created to help promote Christian character in high school boys through emphasis in speech skills, sportsmanship and scholastic achievement. The Hi-Y service clubs eventually grew into the "four fronts" program which included the Hi-Y Club for high school boys, Jr. Hi-Y Club for middle school children, Tri Hi-Y Club for girls, and the Gra-Y Club for grade school children. Photograph article dated January 23, 1963 partially reads, "A 17-year-old Cleveland High School senior and three other teen-agers entered the final round of competition today to determine the Los Angeles YMCA's 15th annual Hy-Y [sic] Boy of the Year. The senior, John Mounier, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Mounier...is a member of the Phaetons Hi-Y Club at the West Valley YMCA. The boys were to be rated on their character, scholarship, leadership and community service." Seen, left to right, are Tom Adkins, John Mounier, Jud Blaine, and Dann Boyd.
