Famed Florida A&M marching band suspended another year
The Champion family already has told FAMU they plan to sue the university.
FAMU began making some changes following Champion’s death — including a new regulation requiring those attending, visiting or working at the school to tell police within 24 hours about any hazing incidents.
Mr. Ammons said Monday that the university is looking at new rules for the band, including academic standards for band members, limits on eligibility and an increase in the number of adults who must accompany the band on out-of-town trips. Champion died on a band bus outside an Orlando hotel.
FAMU set up a task force to look at hazing, although the panel has not met since a flare-up over whether it should follow the state’s open-meetings laws. Several members have since resigned.
