Former State Representative, James Bush III, was the guest preacher at Ebenezer United Methodist Church [2001 NW 35th Street] last Sunday as the pastor, Dr. Joreatha Capers, and the congregation celebrated their annual Bethune-Cookman University [B-CU] Day. Participants in the service, including Richard Strachan, Jr., Gracelyn Thomas, Eileen Robinson and Bush all graduated from B-CU. Capers said that the church pays homage to the University and its graduates each year because of the example of excellence that its founder, Dr. Mary McCloud Bethune, set when she first opened its doors with just a few dollars and five eager students.
