Description

The F.S.N.S. student organization with the longest history was the Christian Association. Active as early as 1886, it played a significant role on campus for many years and had regular Thursday meetings during much of its history. It also raised funds for worthy causes, hosted an annual fair, dances and teas, and supported the school's medicine chest and a reading table featuring popular magazines of the day.

In 1921, membership included ninety percent of the student body. This 1921 Senior Cabinet includes President Bertha Robinson (middle) Front row: Doris Brown, Hortense Mackay, Joyce Ames, Christine Hunser. Back row: Arline Coffin, Addie Reed, Frances Goodwin, Thelma Lawrence and Julia Cox.
