Philosophy We Strive For in The Club
The Shaw University Bear Boosters Club was incorporated in February 1970, by a number of prominent men, among them JudgeGeorge R. Greene, Dr. George C. Debnam, and the “Papa Bear” James E. Lytle, legendary former Athletic Director and coach of Shaw University. “The Club” as it was called, was created to promote the athletic programs at the University with alumni and friends and to serve as a communication link between supporters of athletic programs and the University.
The original objectives and purposes of the “The Club” were:
A. To promote the spirit of fellowship among fellow alumni and friends of Shaw University.
B. To strengthen our relationship with the “The Club” and the Athletic Department of the University
C. To present, encourage and sponsor activities, which will enhance the reputation of the “The Club” and the University and interpret the same to the public.
D. To provide financial support through fundraising in accordance with NCAA Division II policies, University guidelines, federal and state laws, and all applicable school and conference policies.
