• FAMU trims list of candidates for president

    Updated:

    Florida A&M University is narrowing its list of candidates for university president.
     
    A university search committee on Monday interviewed six semifinalists for the position. Two candidates were asked to meet with FAMU trustees later this week.
     
    The two chosen were Elmira Mangum, vice president for budget and planning at Cornell University and John Price, the former president of University of North Texas at Dallas.
     
    But the Tallahassee Democrat reported former FAMU president Walter Smith told the search committee the school should hire its current interim president.
     
    Smith said that Larry Robinson was better than any of the candidates who were being considered.
     
    Robinson has led the school since the abrupt resignation of James Ammons amid the fallout of the hazing death of a drum major.
