WILLIAMSBURG, Ky.—The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Alumni Association recognized and inducted members from the class of 1961 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.

Alums of the University are inducted into the Creech-Boswell Club upon reaching the 50th year since their graduation. Four members of the class of ’61 attended the dinner: Larry Ledbetter of Lexington, Ky., Georgia Robinson, Wanda Freeman and Brenda Rains, all of Williamsburg, Ky. Ledbetter was pinned and inducted into the Club by club president Paul P. Steely and alumni director Dave Bergman. Robinson, Freeman and Rains were pinned and inducted into the club at a ceremony preceding UC’s 2011 Commencement earlier in the year.

Steely took his pledge as new club president at the ceremony also. In his acceptance speech, Steely, class of ’49, referred often and sincerely to the University as “my Cumberland.” Many of the others at the dinner echoed his sentiments.

“I love it,” said Virginia (Jones) Logan, ’49, of coming back to campus. “I really enjoy it.”

Creech-Boswell Club-goers were also treated to special music by UC alums and Williamsburg residents Virgil Bowlin and Rayford Watts.
