Greater Cleveland Branch 

Fifteen university graduates residing in the Cleveland, Ohio metropolitan area were chartered as a Branch of the National Association of University Women on November 20, 1988, at the Holiday Inn Beachwood.  Mrs. Nancy B. Collins, then North Central Sectional Director, inducted the charter members.  The National First Vice President, Ms. Emma Redmond of Dayton, Ohio, installed the officers.  Mrs. Beverly Webster Lewis was elected president.  


Charter members of the Greater Cleveland Branch of the National Association of University Women are: Beverly Webster Lewis, Josephine Flemster, Bertha Frieson, Ruby Jackson, Susie Lee, E. Lucille Minor, Tyna Lewis, Catherine Rucker, Vanessa Scott, June Merida Sutton, Muriel Talbert, Sammye Tarter, Charlotte Taylor, Kimberly Turner and Grace White Ware.  


Since organizing, members have developed and participated in community programs that promote the theme of the National organization.  Literacy, the Reading Jubilee, co-sponsoring programs in health awareness, giving community support to local as well as national and international programs and awarding scholarships to graduates of area high schools are some of the projects in which the Branch members involve themselves.  In 2003, the Greater Cleveland Branch was awarded a resolution from then Mayor of Warrensville Hts. Community (Marcia Fudge) proclaiming February 22, 2003 as Reading Jubilee Day.  


The Greater Cleveland Branch continues to strive toward the high ideals held by the founders of the National organization with the help of its dedicated members.
