Tallahassee, Florida -- March 24, 2011 --

Florida A&M University (FAMU) will host its Weekend of Rededication (WORD) and spring Alumni Meeting April 28 through April 30.

“It is always so heartwarming to see alums from days gone by return to the ‘Hill,’” said Executive Director for the Office of Alumni Affairs Carmen Cummings-Martin. “They are really interested in seeing the great strides over the years here on campus. I believe Weekend of Rededication is a gem of a chance for them to reconnect with classmates from the good ole days and to give back via their talents and treasure to help sustain our beloved alma mater.”

The celebration will honor the university’s Golden Anniversary Class of 1961 and Legends in the classes of 1951, 1956 and 1966 for WORD. Several activities have been planned including the Gaslight Renaissance: A Tribute to the Arts featuring moments from the stage classic: “Ain’t Misbehavin,” and a talent show featuring alums from the 1950s and 1960s at Charles Winter Wood Theatre.
