A Great Educator- Cornell Bell
I am always amazed at the lack of reporting of anyone who was a prominent part of black history dying. Cornell Bell left a legacy for many black at Purdue University. He died last week at age 86, had no children of his own, but he had an extended family of hundreds of minority students he recruited to Purdue University during his 37-year career at the Krannert School.
Cornell Bell's was a part of an informal network of black scholars across the United States,who helped promising black students get into top schools, find careers in corporate America and, ultimately, realize their fullest potential.
He will be sadly missed.
