FAMU and the Southside Initiative

Department heads at Florida A&M University have not forgotten where they came from.

Because of this knowledge and understanding, FAMU is expanding its involvement with the southside initiative by inviting principals from all Leon County schools to campus.

Last year, FAMU made quite an impression as both president and Dr. Gainous mentored children at Wesson Elementary, the F school is now a C school.

President Gainous' wife says it's the university's responsibility to be good neighbors. Gainous says the university is wiser after a year working on the southside initiative. He hopes this will lead to more success for area children.
