Cumberlands inducts new members into Creech-Boswell Club


Cumberland alumni visit in the lobby of the Cumberland Inn while waiting for the annual Creech-Boswell dinner to begin on Friday, Sept. 28. Alumni flocked to Williamsburg, Ky., this past weekend for University of the Cumberlands' annual Homecoming event.

Williamsburg, Ky. – The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Alumni Association recognized and inducted members from the class of 1962 into the Creech Boswell Club this past Friday. The induction took place during the Creech-Boswell dinner that takes place during UC’s annual Homecoming weekend.

“I am always proud to tell people where I graduated from,” said Mr. Phillip Catron. “This is only my second time coming back to the University and the changes that have been made on campus since I graduated are excellent.”

Alums of the University are inducted into the Creech-Boswell Club upon reaching the 50th year since their graduation. Nine members of the ’62 class attended the dinner: Dr. MLE Angel, Mr. Bill Bryant, Ms. Nancy Cathcart, Mr. Phillip Catron, Mr. James Meeks, Ms. Shirley Norman, Mr. Robert Pendleton, Mr. Howard Shelton, and Mr. Jack Sterling. Cathcart, Catron, Pendleton, and Shelton were pinned and inducted into the Club by club president Paul P. Steely and alumni director Dave Bergman. Angel, Bryant, Meeks, Norman, and Sterling were pinned and inducted into the club at a ceremony preceding UC’s 2012 Commencement earlier in the year.

“I really enjoyed the small college atmosphere and my experiences here were very enjoyable,” said Ms. Cathcart. “I am really excited to be here and to see the familiar faces of my classmates.”

The Creech-Boswell guests were treated to music from UC alum Wanda Cornelius (class of ’71) of Williamsburg, Kentucky and she was accompanied by Virgil Bowlin (class of ’97) of London, Kentucky. Wanda’s music is written by her husband and UC alum Dr. Lewis Cornelius (class of ’69).

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; twelve graduate degrees, including two doctorate, two specialist and eight master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
