A Look Back to Step Sing 1976

The Wright Center is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The official dedication of the new auditorium took place on January 22, 1976. In March, students competing in Step Sing were the first to perform on Samford’s new stage. Six hundred students participated with 16 groups competing.

Step Sing that year was considered a bicentennial celebration in honor of our nation’s 200th anniversary. Many of the competing groups used the bicentennial as a theme for their program.
The awards were divided into divisions.

The winners were Alpha Delta Phi in the Sorority Division, the Ministerial Association won the Organizational Division, and the Freshmen received top honors in the Class Division.  Sigma Nu won the Fraternity Division and took home the Sweepstakes Trophy by performing original songs written by fraternity members Rex Hammock and Racy Evers.
