Naming Ceremony for Dr. Ann Taylor Green
Daytona Beach, FL - B-CU will honor the legacy of Dr. Ann Taylor Green next week as they proudly reveal her name on one of the campus’ historical buildings. The building, at the corner of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune and Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. boulevards will now be known as the Ann Taylor Green General Studies Building. Dr. Green, who is a retiree of B-CU and active member in the City of Daytona Beach community, will be joined by family, friends and supporters for the official naming ceremony. The event will take place in the parking lot of the general studies building at 2 p.m., Thursday, August 27th.
B-CU’s general studies building is one that carries a great deal of history. It was formally the McLeod Hospital, which served the students of the former Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School for Girls (now B-CU) and the African-American residents in Daytona Beach. The hospital operated from 1915 until 1949, when it was closed down by Halifax Health District. It also served as a training place for the school’s aspiring nurses.
Dr. Ann Taylor Green embodies the characteristics that the former McLeod Hospital represented. She is a dedicated and active member of the university and the community. Dr. Green spent 38 years at B-CU as an instructor, provost, and vice president. After retirement, she was awarded the title of provost emeritus. Dr. Green is a native of Birmingham AL and a graduate of Talladega College. She went on to earn a Master of Science degree in Mathematics Education from North Carolina A & T State University and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Educational Administration from The American University. She is a member of the Gamma Mu Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and the Daytona Beach Chapter of The Links, Inc. She is also a member of Mt. Bethel Baptist Institutional Church in Daytona Beach, FL; and is married to Arthur R. Green.
