Help Celebrate 120 Years of Bethune-Cookman

Hello Friends,

History will show that in 1923 The Daytona Literary and Industrial Training School for Negro Girls began a merger with The Cookman Institute of Jacksonville, Florida, and that the merger was completed in 1925. The merged institution was called the Daytona-Cookman Collegiate Institute, and they fielded the inaugural football team in the school’s history.   The record would show that the Wildcats lost that game 56-6 to its opponent. However, over the past 100 years, Bethune-Cookman University has managed to put together a storied history in its athletic endeavors. The year, 2024, is a pivotal time in the history of Bethune-Cookman University, and it’s time to celebrate 120 Years, recognize all athletes who dawned the Wildcat uniforms, reestablish, reengage, and relaunch the Wildcat Athletic Booster organization.  

“Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service  Without faith, nothing is possible  With it, nothing is impossible.” Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune.   I have faith that all who are aware of the Legacy of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune will be proud to join the Wildcat Athletic Booster Club, which will assist all Bethune-Cookman University athletic programs and student-athletes to reach heights beyond their wildest dreams.  

Can we count on you to elevate the LEGACY?  Just do it!
