Florida A&M University hires anti-hazing chief
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida A&M University has hired alumnus Bryan F. Smith as its anti-hazing administrator.
Interim university President Larry Robinson said Friday that Smith's job will be ensuring that initiatives adopted after the hazing death of a band member are implemented.
Drum major Robert Champion died in 2011 after he was beaten aboard a bus for the famed Marching 100 band.
Smith will start Feb. 1 and earn $90,000 annually. He said his goal will be to change a hazing culture on the Tallahassee campus.
Smith most recently was executive director and co-founder of Destined for Success Educational Services in Decatur, Ga.
He has a law degree from John Marshall Law School, a master's in public management from Florida A&M and a bachelor's in political science from North Carolina A&T State University.
