• 2013 Fundraising Cabaret

    The Chapter conducted a fundraiser for the NOBLE National Conference to be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2014.  There were more than 150 people in attendance and a great time was had by all.  NOBLE Past National President Maurita Bryant and members of the Pittsburgh Chapter were also in attendance. The attendees were amazed that this was the first event and are looking forward to future Cabarets.  Chapter President Williams’ states “I am proud of our Chapter members who took on the challenge of making this a success with only a few months of planning”. The planning began in August at the National Conference in Pittsburgh, PA., when the Grand Rapids conference committee Chair Shirley Berger asked for support from Region IV in raising funds for the 2014 conference.  The Greater Cleveland Chapter has forwarded their monetary commitment to Chairperson Berger.

    Great job award winning Greater Cleveland Chapter!!

  • 2013 NOBLE Conference ~ Pittsburgh

  • Noble GCC featured in Kaleidascope Magazine

    Excerpt from the article in Kaleidoscope Magazine:

    Once established in the city Williams became aware that the local chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, called NOBLE, was inactive.  Williams,  22-year life member of NOBLE, worked to change that and on March lB, 2013, the NOBLE Greater Cleveland Chapter was reactivated. When the national chapters’ recruitment campaign ended on March 31,2013, the NOBLE Greater Cleveland Chapter had 42 members and won an award at the national conference for the largest chapter membership increase nationwide.   Williams won a leadership award for her efforts and was appointed the NOBLE Greater Cleveland
    Chapter president as well as serving as assistant to the national president for the past two years.  NOBLE local chapter members have engaged in community
    outreach programs in the few months since their reactivation.  They partnered with the Greater Cleveland Thansit Authority and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland to fingerprint children in the Tremont area and provide identification cards to their parents. They also partnered with the Gloria Pointer Scholarship Fund, which was featured in the Diversity Issue of Kaleidoscope, to support initiatives addressing murdered and missing children. Williams holds a Master of Public Administration degree from American University in Washingon, D.C.; a bachelor’s degree in physical education from George Williams College and an associate degree in law enforcement from Loop College in Chicago.  She is a 35-year life member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and serves as the corporate liaison to the national president.
