Bethune Sweethearts - Member Spotlights
Mary McLeod Bethune was an extraordinary educator, civil rights leader, and government official who founded the National Council of Negro Women and Bethune-Cookman College.
Mrs. Bethune’s background as a teacher inspired her to open the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School for Negro Girls in Daytona Beach, Florida. On October 3, 1904, the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School opened with just five students. Eventually the school blossomed to include a farm, high school, and nursing school.
Each month the NCNW Denver Section recognizes members in our area that are extraordinary.
Join the NCNW Denver Section. Next month's "Bethune Sweetheart" just may be you!
