The Washington DC Chapter is proud to showcase the 2017 Freshmen Sendoff. This year's event had 87 participants, which included 18 freshmen, 8 current students, 32 parents and 29 Alumni. Rufus Little moderated the event with presentations by Caeden Drayton, Stephanie Griffith-Richardson, Tasha Cole, Alean Miller, Latoya Grant, LaRena Sessoms and El Brown. We would like to extend extreme gratitude to current students and FAMU DC Metro Club members Pashhur Quarles, Chloe Henderson, and Kiah Lewis for leading the student informational sessions.

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
