The San Angelo Club was originally organized as San Angelo Business and Professional Women's Club, May 25, 1923, by Mrs. Ruth Mathews Stein of Amarillo and Mrs. Brown F. Lee. The club was chartered with 20 members and Mrs. Sadie Boulware, postmistress, was elected the first President.
From 1923 to the present, the years have been filled with records of accomplishments that have helped to make San Angelo a better place to live and work. PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY BPW HAVE INCLUDED: Take Our Youth to Work, BPW Individual Development Program, Christmas at Old Fort Concho, Concho Valley Home for Girls, Institute for Cognitive Development, breast cancer awareness activities, Adopt-a-Spot and many others.
Early efforts to provide assistance to women in pursuing higher education resulted in establishing an Educational Load Fund in 1938. In 1952 this fund became a scholarship fund for local student nurses in the Shannon School of Nursing. Today, it is known as the Ida Gerber Memorial Scholarship fund. Yearly scholarships are given.
In July 2009 our name was changed to Texas Business Women of San Angelo.
Programs covering timely subjects, public speaking through Personal Development, and other self-improvement opportunities are offered each year.
