Parent and students had great workshops that they felt were beneficial to navigating their child's first year at FAMU. Parent, Jewel Smith was so pleased that she and her husband decided to become associate members of the FAMU NAA Washington, DC Chapter.  The Scholarship and Internship session presented by Tasha Cole, VP of Resource Development, Congressional, Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. was well received by the participants. The much anticipated parent do's and don'ts session lead by Alean Miller filled every parent's tool box with a wealth of knowledge. Special thanks to SKC Early Education Center owner Dr. Campbell and to alumnus Melissa Elliott for securing the venue.  Best of luck to FAMU's newest Rattlers
