Biographical Sketch

The Las Fidelis Study Club of Levelland, Texas has been a vital part of the cultural, intellectual, educational, and charitable life in Levelland for well over sixty years. This women’s organization was founded in May of 1946, and has been a continual presence in Levelland ever since. Las Fidelis joined the Federation of Women’s Clubs in May of 1947, becoming part of the Caprock District, the Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs, and a member of the federal federation. The club’s years are highlighted by friendships, learning, working toward self-improvement, and working for a better Levelland through participation in charitable, community, and public affairs. Over the years, the Las Fidelis members have given time and financial help to the community. The study club has contributed to numerous very worthwhile endeavors in the community, but the project that they are the most proud of is the annual South Plains College (SPC) Scholarship that the club awards to a female student each year. Las Fidelis presented its first scholarship in 1958 and has awarded a scholarship every year since. In the club year of 2010 –2011, the Las Fidelis Scholarship was chartered as an endowed scholarship with the South Plains College Foundation insuring that the Las Fidelis scholarship will continue in perpetuity. In 2012, the Las Fidelis Study Club was honored at the South Plains College Spring Gala by being named one of the three SPC Pacesetter Award Winners.
