DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Name: Dr. Frank Black ’67
Donation: $25,000

Through his giving, Dr. Frank S. Black is challenging Central State University student recruiters, faculty, and alumni to encourage more black male students to consider elementary education as a plausible career option. Establishing a named endowment fund for teacher education “ just seemed like the perfect vehicle to permanently honor my beloved twin brother, Donald, and to make a difference at my Alma Mater, Central State University,” said Dr. Black.

Dr. Frank S. Black donated over $25,000 to Central State University Foundation to establish the Dr. Frank S. Black and Dr. Donald F. Black Endowed Teacher Education Scholarship Fund.
