Tallahassee, FL – With the height of increasing college tuition rates, Bethune-Cookman University visited the Florida’s capitol for Wildcat Day at the Capitol (WDAC) to lobby for additional funding that will aid current and prospective students during their matriculation at B-CU. Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and alumni boarded buses on Wednesday, March 22nd and head to Tallahassee to join President Jackson and other university leaders. The WDAC participants met with lawmakers to discuss their concerns, share the successes of B-CU, lobby for funding and highlight the importance of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune’s statue placement in Washington, D.C. This past year, a statue of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune was unanimously nominated to replace Confederate Army General Edmund Kirby Smith at the U.S. Capitol.
