The Florida A and M University Board of Trustees unanimously appointed former Provost Larry Robinson to
temporarily lead the school until its new president. James H.
Ammons takes office July 2nd.
Monday's action followed the resignation Friday of Interim
President Castell Bryant, who had been on the job nearly
two-and-a-half years. She wrote in a letter to board Vice Chairman
William Jennings that she thought it best to leave immediately
because of the turmoil surrounding the university.
That has included persistent financial problems, critical audits
and the recent resignation of board Chairwoman Challis Lowe.
