TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida A&M University is preparing to host an event in appreciation of outgoing Interim President Dr. Larry Robinson.

The university will host the Dr. Larry Robinson Endowed Scholarship Appreciation Reception on Tuesday March 18, in Hotel Duval's Horizon Ballroom, located at 415 N. Monroe Street. 

The event lasts from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.     The event will include heavy hors d'ouevres, and music from the FAMU Jazz Faculty Ensemble. Tickets for the reception are $100, and can be purchased on the event's webpage.

The event is part of the University's efforts to thank the outgoing President Robinson for his service as interim, following the resignation of Dr. James Ammons in 2012.

“Dr. Robinson has been an exemplary leader and supporter of FAMU and his service to the university deserves to be recognized,” said Interim Provost Rodner Wright, event chair. “It is an honor to create an endowed scholarship in his name and continue his legacy of ‘Excellence With Caring’ for generations to come.”

Dr. Robinson will step down on April 1, when he is replaced by the university's incoming President Dr. Elmira Mangum.
