MOTTO: Inspire with our Hearts, Lead with Humility, Soar with Pride
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Mary McLeod Bethune (1875-1955)
The daughter of former slaves, Mary McLeod Bethune rose to become a noted black educator and adviser to presidents from Coolidge to Truman. In 1904, she established the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School for Negro Girls with $1.50 and sheer determination. In 1923, she oversaw the school's merger with the all male Cookman Institute in Jacksonville, creating the Bethune-Cookman Institute, now known as Bethune-Cookman University. Bethune remained president of the school for more than 40 years. In 1924, Bethune became president of the National Association of Colored Women, at that time the highest national office a black woman could attain. And in 1935, she formed the National Council of Negro Women to take on the major national issues affecting blacks. Bethune served as President Franklin Roosevelt's director of the National Youth Administration's Division of Negro Affairs (1936), becoming the first black woman to serve as head of a federal agency, and later was a consultant to the founding conference of the United Nations.
