In recognition of the life, legacy and the inspiration of the late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) named its new residence hall in her honor. Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Barbara R. Snyder, CWRU President, and Linda Sharp-Taylor, African American Alumni Association President, for special remarks to commemorate this special occasion. In addition, Mervyn Jones, son of the late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Makela Hayford, president of the African American Society, other family members and friends were also in attendance to share in this historical event. The Stephanie Tubbs Jones Residence Hall (formerly The Apartments at 1576), opened in Fall 2015, is located at 1576 E. 115th Street, just south of Wade Park in Cleveland. The Congresswoman made a number of historic achievements in her distinguished career as a public servant and trailblazer, set many records and reached many milestones.
