Joseph Patrick McMullen and Senator Geraldine Thompson

FAMU Day at the Capitol

HAPCO’s Chairman Joseph Patrick McMullen and Senator Geraldine Thompson, Florida State Senate, 15th District, last Wednesday, Feb 21 – the 2024 FAMU Day at the Capitol. Senator Thompson’s guidance, inspiration and support have been crucial in our development of programs that help our community’s young people improve their lives with their musical and artistic talents.

Great to see everyone who took the day to help FAMU increase engagement, connection and discussion between FAMU stakeholders and state officials and politicians! During this annual event, individuals associated with the university also advocate for its needs and interests directly to their partnered policymakers. It’s a fabulous opportunity for the FAMU community to have direct communication with policy and decision-makers over the university’s aspects, concerns and future plans.

Senator Thompson is co-hosting HAPCO’s free concert by the UCF Flying Horse Big Band at the Wells’Built Museum in Parramore on March 9, 2024 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Details: click here
