Florida A&M University (FAMU) President Larry Robinson, Ph.D. has a new executive assistant. Longtime FAMU employee Cynthia Henry has been named executive assistant to President Robinson and assumed the new role following the retirement of former assistant Ora Mukes, who retired on December 31, 2017.
Henry has been a part of the FAMU family for more than 30 years. Her valuable experience includes significant responsibilities in budgeting, grants development and research processes.
“I have previously worked with Cynthia Henry in the FAMU School of the Environment while serving as an administrator, professor and principal investigator. Her attention to detail and superb interpersonal skills will continue to serve the FAMU community well,” said Robinson.
President Robinson praised the contributions of Mukes. She came out of retirement to assist him and the Office of the President in September 2016 when he was appointed interim president.
“Mrs. Mukes answered the call and returned to FAMU to help with multiple facets of coordinating activities of the president’s office. She will be missed,” said Robinson.
Henry’s appointment is effective immediately.
