3DD6164F-EB13-45D9-AE93-B916E42872FC.png_zpsyhfnqseb.jpegWelcome Bethune-Cookman University as the D.J's Music Site HBCU Campaign's May 2015 HBCU of the Month Supported Institution.

Founded as Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School in 1904 by Mary McLeod Bethune. The school underwent several stages of growth and development until it merged with the Cookman Institute of Jacksonville, Florida in 1923 and became a co-ed high school. A year later in 1924, it became affiliated with the Methodist Church and by 1931, the school became a junior college.

By 1941, the Florida Board of Education approved the school in becoming a four-year college and a 4-year baccalaureate program in Liberal Arts and Teacher Educations became official. The name was then changed to Bethune-Cookman College.

In 2007, the Board of Trustees approved for another name change to Bethune-Cookman University after the institution established its first graduate program.

We asked if you celebrate and honor the prestigious land of the B-CU WILDCATS with us all month long as you show off and share your B-CU pride with news, pictures of you in your B-CU gear, campus photos to the official hashtag #MayBCU.

Rabb worked for four university presidents during his 46-year tenure at the institution. He served as the administrator of the former John A.

From 1953 to 1981, Rabb also served as secretary of Tuskegee's Board of Trustees under former Tuskegee president, Luther Foster. He was also assistant to the president from 1974 to 1981.

Rabb retired from the university in November 1981, but continued to be an involved and welcomed alumnus on campus. He was a special gust at the first ribbon cutting for Tompkins Hall's re-opening and was served the first meal when the renovated dining facilities open to the public in 2013. Later that year, the university helped him celebrate his 100th birthday in elegant style at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center at Tuskegee University.

Rabb was buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Tuskegee on April 24 at 12:30pm. A memorial service will be held May 16th at Tuskegee University Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church at 701 W. Montgomery Road; Tuskegee Institute, AL, 36088. The church can be contacted at: 334-727-3210.

The D.J's Music Site HBCU Campaign celebrated and campaign for Tuskegee University as our April 2015 HBCU of the Month Supported Institution.
