52 Faces of Community: Cleve Woolard

By Holly Desrosier

Posted with permission from the New Bern Sun Journal

     Cleveland “Cleve” Woolard firmly believes in making a difference. After he started volunteer work nearly 50 years ago, he hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back.

     “My whole deal is making a difference in the community,” he said. “It’s not about me.”

Born in the tiny town of Bethel, Cleve has lived in the New Bern area since 1965. As an adolescent, Cleve attended New Bern High School and Craven Community College. Soon after graduating high school, he began what would become a 33-year career with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). He retired as a Division Bituminous Engineer in September 2003.

     Not long after retirement, former governor Beverly Perdue awarded Cleve with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine. He graciously accepted this prestigious award in 2010 for his 33 years of government service and extensive community involvement.

     Cleve’s volunteer work began in the 1970s with the American Red Cross. During his 10 years there, he taught First Aid and CPR to various fire departments, rescue squads and members of the community.

     He went on to become a member of the West of New Bern Volunteer Fire Department (WNBFD), where he has volunteered for over 35 years. He served as fire chief for 10 of those years and has been in the Line of Officers for the department for as long as the volunteers can remember. Cleve and other volunteers often respond to vehicle accidents and give mutual aid to other stations when needed. They are also involved with both structural and wildfire suppression, as well as Airport Rescue and Firefighting at the hazmat operational level.

     Cleve became a certified fire instructor through the NC Department of Insurance and Community Colleges. He has taught many fire and rescue classes throughout the New Bern area and at Craven Community College since 1984.

     “And also, I was very instrumental in starting the first fire prevention program in our county schools for our children,” said Cleve.  WNBFD’s fire prevention program volunteers visit preschool and elementary schools annually to discuss fire safety. Under Cleve’s leadership, WNBFD also started a junior firefighter program for teens ages 16-18. He was president of the Craven County Fireman’s Association on five different occasions and received several awards.

      Cleve has also been active as a Mason and a Shriner. He joined the Bern Lodge, Masonic Order #724 in 1981 and the New Bern Scottish Rite Bodies of Freemasonry in 1982. He became Master of Bern Lodge in 1991. In 1985, he started selling chicken plates annually with profits going to Masonic charities, and he still chairs this fundraiser today.  In 1983, Cleve joined the Sudan Temple Fraternal Order of the Shrine. He became a member of the Sudan Chef Crew in 1987, serving as its director twice.

        As a longtime member of the New Bern Shrine Club, Cleve has been involved with the local annual Shriners Fish Fry for over 30 years and has been chair for 15 years. This year, the event raised $42,000, with all proceeds going to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

     “It’s very rewarding,” he said. “It’s really hard to put into words what we do.”  Cleve was appointed to the Divan of Sudan Temple in 2013 and currently serves as Oriental Guide as he makes his way to become Potentate. Through his many years of hard work and leadership, Cleve’s passion to help those in need is clear. His goal as a Shriner is to get children in need of medical care the help they require at one of the 22 Shriners Hospitals.  “I wanted to make a difference in the community, and I feel like we’ve done that,” said Cleve.

     Children with medical issues such as orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip or cleft palate are eligible to receive all services needed, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. If anyone has a child in need of those services, they are encouraged to contact the Sudan Shriners at 252-637-5197.

     “It’s all about the kids,” said Cleve. “It has been my whole span of service.”

Although Cleve has been an active volunteer in several organizations for the past 50 years, don’t expect him to stop anytime soon.

     “I’m not slowing down,” he said decidedly. “I’m gonna keep right on getting up.”

Sudan Shriner to run the Chicago Marathon October 7th to raise money for Shriners Hospital for Children 

Being able to combine two things first being a Shriner then a runner is a neat thing but raising money for our Hospitals while representing South Brunswick Islands Shrine Club and Sudan Shriners at the Chicago Marathon is a lifelong dream.  

 

Someone asked me if I was planning to win!!   I thought to myself that’s was funny, “the Elite runners will have eaten, taken a shower, gone to the airport and flow half way home by the time I cross the finish line…this is all about representing our Kids and Sudan Shriners and Shrinedom”.
