FAMU Hosts Welcome Rally for President Mangum April 4
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The month of April begins a new season at Florida A&M University (FAMU) as the campus welcomes its new leader, President Elmira Mangum. To commemorate the occasion and celebrate her in “true Rattler fashion,” FAMU will host a Welcome Rally on Friday, April 4 at 12:15 pm on the steps of Lee Hall, 1601 S. Martin L. King Jr. Blvd.
The event will include spirited tributes by student leaders, the Marching “100,” FAMU Cheerleaders and more. The event is free and open to the public.

On April 1, President Elmira Mangum will become FAMU’s 11th president and first permanent female president in the institution’s 126-year history. She previously served as vice president for planning and budget at Cornell University where she was the senior administrator responsible for the management of Cornell’s resources and the annual budgeting process.
After a thorough presidential search, the FAMU Board of Trustees selected Mangum to become president on Jan. 9. The Florida Board of Governors unanimously approved her appointment on Feb. 20.
