Meet NUBAA Salute to Excellence Honorees: Eileen Cherry-Chandler and L. Stanley Davis
NCE was founded in an impromptu manner in 1971 by Eileen Cherry (then F.M.O. Coordinator of Cultural Affairs), Clifton Gerrying III (an F.M.O. officer), and Lurell Stanley Davis (a musically talented freshman from Baltimore, Maryland) to perform at a fundraiser intended to help an NU student build cash for his legal defense fund. After that successful spring fundraiser, the idea of organizing a “black choir” was brought forth and soon after NCE was born. More than 45 years later, NCE continues to be Northwestern’s premier, gospel choir.
