Congratulations to Linda Wilson and Louise Steele for receiving a Judson Smart Living Award. The awards were developed as part of Judson's centennial celebration. The awards honored individuals who "make things happen" in University Circle in the categories of arts, education, healthcare, philanthropy, and volunteerism.

The winners were recognized at Judson's centennial gala, which was held at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Linda and Louise were also interviewed on WKYC-TV's morning show, Good Company. You're invited to view the video clip.

They couldn’t be more different from each other – one is retired, the other a postdoctoral researcher in genetics, one is black and one is white, one is tall, the other more diminutive – but both women are committed to helping students.

The Saturday Tutoring Program at the Church of the Covenant provides free tutoring for students in grades 1-12 from schools throughout Greater Cleveland. “We handle all subjects and help them prepare for standardized testing and more,” says Ms. Wilson.

A retired English teacher at John Hay High School just a few blocks down the street from Church of the Covenant, Ms. Wilson first got involved with its members through a tutoring program at John Hay. It soon expanded and now draws tutors from area colleges and communities.

The interaction has been tremendous, with the children seeing firsthand how studying can help them get ahead in life. And Ms. Wilson and Ms. Steele also offer special programs to help them prepare for a first job or college.

They even organize field trips to University Circle institutions. “Everyone in University Circle has been so helpful in helping to reach our kids,” says Ms. Wilson.
