FAMU Broward County Alumni gives over $10,000 in donations to football program
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Broward Alumni Chapter, celebrated its Sixth Annual Unity Day on June 27, 2015 at The Signature Grand, where the Guest Speaker was Head Coach Alexander Wood. The goal of Unity Day each year is to find ways of connecting the community with FAMU. Each year, the chapter awards over $10,000 in scholarships to freshmen students heading to the “HILL.” In an effort to continue yearly giving, the 2014 focus was to expand methods of awarding much needed support to students, thus leading to the creation of the 2014 Broward County Scholarship Endowment.
This year, to continue its giving from the community, alumni and supporters, the Chapter agreed to focus on the needs of the university football program and student athletes. There were no doubts that this was the right decision after hearing Coach Wood’s plans for the students and program success.
Also in attendance were FAMU NAA President Tommy Mitchell who reiterated the importance of alumni giving and Office of Alumni Affairs Brandon Hill. All proceeds to benefit the FAMU Football program.
