Henry Peterson

henry-petersonHENRY ‘PETE’ PETERSON, or “Pete’ as he is affectionately known, hails from the Miami area of Florida. He was an outstanding football player in high school, and received a football scholarship to attend FAMU in Tallahassee, FL. Upon reporting in the fall of 1953, it was determined he had an undiagnosed injury, and he lost his football scholarship. But Pete was a ‘double-threat’. So he then tried out for the band (The FAMU Famous 100) and won a music scholarship as a saxophone player. He graduated in 1957 with a BS in music. He was also commissioned a 2nd LT in the US Army (Intelligence Branch). Classmates in 1957 who were commissioned with him include former ASBC Trustee Wilburt Jenkins and Fredrick Humphries, later President of FAMU from 1985- 2001.

2015 FAMU Fundraising Gala


On April 11, 2015, the Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University National Alumni Association – Washington, DC Chapter held its annual fundraising gala.  We were honored to have to both Dr. Frederick Humphries (the 8th University President) and Rufus Montgomery (Chairman, FAMU Board of Trustees) as our guest speakers.  Nearly 250 Rattlers and guests were in attendance and over $20,000 was raised to support scholarships for local area students and other University/chapter programs. We look forward to seeing everyone next April when we host the 2016 gala.
