We want to thank everyone that came out for the WVU vs OSU Pregame Alumni Reception. We had people travel from throughout the greater Cleveland area, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to attend the reception! We fell short in overtime, but it was a good game.

A special thanks to everyone from the alumni organization and leaders from other regional alumni chapters that came to the event. Also, thanks to Mike Gansey for speaking and providing some Cavs gear for our auction. The support from everyone was greatly appreciated.

Why did you choose WVU?
I chose WVU because I loved the campus. The first time that I stepped on
campus, I knew I was meant to be a Mountaineer.

Please describe the impact that receiving a
scholarship has had on you and your education.
Receiving a scholarship has had a significant impact on me and my
education. I am thankful to the donor because the scholarship is helpful,
and now I can put my money towards something else. I am very grateful
as any scholarship assistance has a very big impact on my family and me.

Condolences to Muir West and the entire West family

Our sincere condolences go out to Muir West and the entire West family on the passing of our North Coast Cleveland WVU Alumni Treasurer Emeritus Stan West.  Many of you may remember some of Stan’s humorous Treasurer’s reports at one of our annual scholarship Spring Dinners.

Up until recently Stan was an active member of our NCC Alumni Steering Committee and his guidance and out-going personality will be greatly missed.

We will be sending a donation to our Stanley E. Friedman North Coast Cleveland WVU Scholarship Fund in Stan’s name on behalf of our NCC Alumni Chapter.

Below is Stan’s obituary with details of his memorial service this Saturday.

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”!

How has this scholarship had an impact on your
Being a recipient of the North Coast Cleveland Alumni Scholarship has
had an extremely positive impact on me. Being able to receive this
scholarship has relieved a considerable amount of financial stress over
