Mike Curb, founder and chair of Curb Records who with his wife, Linda, established the Curb Institute for Music at Rhodes, received an honorary doctor of humanities degree at the convocation. The Mike Curb Institute for Music fosters awareness and understanding of the distinct musical traditions of the South and the impact of music on its culture, history and economy. Earlier that day, the Curbs were inducted into the Benefactors’ Circle, which honors those who have made historic gifts to Rhodes.
