President's Message
Donna K. Allen

Greetings Rattlers & Esteemed Guests,

I would like to welcome you to the Metro-Atlanta Chapter of the FAMU National Alumni Association. We remain committed to providing scholarships to prospective students and providing funds for current students that encounter financial hardships. This is a noble endeavor -- yet, these efforts cannot continue and move forward without your support and the support of other Atlanta area Alums.

With that in mind, I want to challenge you to give back when, where and how you can. Please know that there are many ways to get involved with the Metro-Atlanta Alumni Chapter. Support of fundraising, college fairs, community/volunteerism events and annual giving efforts are just a few of the many opportunities available. I encourage you to show your Rattler pride and join us in our efforts.

In closing, I would like to say many thanks for your ongoing support of the Metro-Atlanta Chapter. Please commit to stay involved and visit the website even more. All efforts will make a difference and are greatly appreciated. Together, we can influence and support the legacy of Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University.

Best Wishes,

Donna K. Allen
Florida A&M University Metro-Atlanta Alumni Chapter
