A Big Thank You From NCC WVU Alumni!!!

A BIG THANK YOU to all of our alumni and friends who have sent in their dues and scholarship donations . . . it is very much appreciated!


We would also like to announce that Les Stone of Mentor, OH has donated $5000 dollars to our scholarship fund!

Les is one of our long time chapter members and his donation is in memory of his wife Alice J. Stone, also an NCC Alum.  Sadly Alice passed away on May 8, 2021 just short of her 88th birthday.

Many may remember Alice from our past Spring Annual Scholarship events where she sometimes preformed dulcimer music prior to dinner.  It was during their visits to West Virginia that Alice began her

interest in dulcimer music.

Our entire chapter thanks you Les for the generosity of your donation in honoring your love for Alice.

Also, a friendly Mountaineer reminder to all those who would still like to donate.  Please support our chapter scholarship!

Every cent that is received after our small operating costs go towards our “Stanley E. Friedman North Coast Cleveland Alumni Scholarship Fund”.

This endowment helps support the Northeast Ohio student chosen by the WVU Foundation to receive the annual scholarship.

The 2021-2022 Northeast Ohio scholarship recipient is Chloe Gobble from Stow, OH.


Thank you and “Go Mountaineers”!

WVU 2019 Brand Ambassadors


To inspire the next generation.
Ever wish you could share your WVU story and become a brand ambassador for the gold and blue? This is your chance. On October 10, the Old Gold New Blue program is hosting Ask Us Anything in Cleveland, a uniquely fun, laid-back event for the current and prospective students and families, as well as alumns and staff (no stuffy PowerPoints, we promise).

And we want you to help us tell the WVU story and inspire the next generation with your experiences. Along the way, you’ll learn everything you didn’t already know about WVU, from how we’re helping students find their purpose to how we’re uplifting the state—one community at a time.

The event is very casual, so no prepared remarks are necessary. We welcome prospective students and parents, and we’d like alumni to mingle and mix with new families to share their great experiences, answer any questions they may have, or point them in the right direction.

Join us.

WVU Alumni Day of Service

A group of local WVU alumni volunteered at the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning for the Annual WVU Alumni Day of Service on October 27. The Center for Arts-Inspired Learning creates innovative learning experiences that empower students to succeed in school, in their first jobs and beyond. The day of service was a great opportunity for alumni to stay connected with their alma matter and embrace its mission to advance education and prosperity for all.

Annual Spring Dinner

ANNUAL SPRING DINNER to feature John Temple, professor at the Reed College of Media at WVU and an accomplished book author.

Dear Fellow WVU NCC Chapter Member:

Our annual spring dinner will be held Monday, May 15, 2017 at Lockkeeper’s in Valley View. Our guest speaker will be John Temple, professor at the Reed College of Media at WVU and an accomplished book author.

Cost is $65 per person. A cash bar will be available. Cocktails from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., followed by dinner and our speaker. Our usual selection of raffle items and door prizes will be available.

John is author of a bestselling non-fiction book, American Pain. It is one of the best books I have read over the past few years, and it is non-fiction that reads like the best Clancy or Patterson novel you have ever picked up.

So these two guys who are homebuilders find themselves SOL when the great recession hits in 2008 and start looking for a new gig. They open a “pain clinic” in Florida that draws “patients” from Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and throughout Appalachia. The “clinics” dispense hundreds of thousands of opioids via “doctors” who provide a short exam and then load them up with Oxycodone, Oxycontin, etc. Then they go out and shoot up in the parking lot of the “clinic.”

This is a poignant topic given the heroin/fentanyl OD problem we have in Northeast Ohio. One of my friend’s sons, who got started on pain meds, died this past year of a heroin overdose in the family home as the pill mills, such as American Pain, got shut down.

John will also talk some about the West Virginia Uncovered program, which he founded in 2008. This involves WVU Reed College of Media students working with small rural newspapers in West Virginia to improve their content and management skills. Below please find a reservation form for the dinner, along with a form for 2017 chapter dues. I hope to see you on May 15, and goooooooo Mountaineers.
