Dear FAMU Family and Friends,
I want to personally wish you and your family Happy Holidays and a prosperous and productive New Year. As you make plans to ring in 2019, mark your calendars to watch our Marching “100” make its debut in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California on New Year’s Day. This is a major accomplishment for our students, Director of Bands Dr. Shelby Chipman and all of the faculty and staff who contribute to the students’ year-round success. Please don’t forget the band and all the “FAMU Rising” strategic priorities in your gift giving as you close out 2018.
