FAMU President Ammons: Suspend Marching 100 for 2012-2013
James Ammons, Florida A&M University president, has recommended the famed Marching 100 band will remain suspended through the 2012-2013 school year, pending a massive restructuring of the band.
The band was suspended following the hazing death of Robert Champion in November.
Eleven FAMU band members face felony charges in Champion’s death.
In the past week, it was reported that some members of the band were not FAMU students, band director Julian White resigned and Florida State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan wrote a letter to Ammons urging the band remain suspended.
