Frederick S. Humphries (l), eighth president of Florida A&M University [FAMU], gave the keynote address for the University's recent Founders Day Convocation. FAMU has held a host of events to celebrate its 125th anniversary. Humphries was joined by James H. Ammons (l-r), tenth president of FAMU; Fred Gainous, ninth president of FAMU; and Larry Robinson, interim president of FAMU. Humphries concluded his message by challenging the audience that it was their responsibility to respond to FAMUs needs. We are survivors; FAMU will be greater than it is today because of you, Humphries said.
