The Emeritus Club

The West Virginia Wesleyan College Emeritus Club was organized in 1961 by the late Roy McCuskey, S.’05, ’08, Hon. ’22; Clyde O. Law, S. ’05, ’08, Hon. ’52; Daisy Furbee Wells, S.’07; and several other alumni. Chartered in 1962, the purpose is for fellowship among those who attended the College 50 or more years ago.

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
Membership in the Emeritus Club is open to anyone who attended or graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan 50 years or more ago —regardless of whether you completed the degree at Wesleyan, at some other institution, or not at all. This year, members of the Class of 1968 are now eligible to join the Emeritus Club.

To become a member, contact Molly Patterson, Coordinator of the Emeritus Club & Stewardship, at patterson_m@wvwc.edu or (304) 473-8540.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
The Club holds luncheons on campus in May, July, August, October, and December. Fellowship is enjoyed at all times. New members are inducted and officers elected at the annual business meeting on Commencement weekend. Dues are $50 for lifetime membership and $25 for auxiliary lifetime membership. Auxiliary membership is for a spouse who did not attend Wesleyan. New members receive a certificate and attractive pin at the time of induction. Other benefits include a quarterly Emeritus Club Newsletter and a birthday greeting.
