The class of 1955 participated in many community service events.

Most significant was the inaugeration of the Tommy Withers Polio Fund in 1951. Tommy, a Freshman classmate, died September 1951 of Polio after being confined for several weeks in an iron lung machine. The class spearheaded a community fund drive for contributions to fight Polio. At the conclusion of the drive, the class collected a total of $3,769.22, and in today's dollars that would be equivalent to $31,719.82 - a not insignificant amount for a Freshman class.
