Ronald Everett Felder Sr.

Rob Felder Memorial

April 4,1944 – June 21,2014

Ronald Everett Felder Sr., served as the President of the Queen City Foundation for 26 years. He was an active community leader in Cincinnati’s educational and social arenas. He attended Cincinnati Public Schools and graduated from Woodward High School. He studied at Xavier University and served four years in the Air Force. Ron was the first African American to be elected to the position of President of Queen City Foundation. Leading the Foundation was not a job, but a joy for him. Through Ron the Foundation was a bridge of assistance and encouragement for many under- represented students who were able to attend selected private schools across the country. Ron personally mentored over 400+ students during their high school years and college experiences. He allowed them to have a voice, meet leaders, have a venue to celebrate their culture and develop leadership skills. Ron impressed upon his students the value of a good education and encouraged them to be the best at what they do.
