The KIM League, the youth basketball program at the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA, may bear the name of one person, but it's been built on the contributions of several.

The league is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and a legacy of contribution stretches back to the league's founding in the late 1950s, when it was called the Midget Basketball League. A local resident, Ez Williams, ran the league, which was for fourth through sixth grade boys who didn't make their elementary school teams.
