Attention All FAMUans,


On Sunday, May 27th, we will hold our annual Rattler Church Service, culminating the 2018 National Alumni Association Convention in Orlando, Florida. This will be a time of inspiration and spiritual charge to the Rattler FAMUly as we depart to serve.


Pastor Derrick L. McRae, Founder and Senior Pastor of The Experience Christian Center in Orlando, Florida, is our preacher of the hour.


Please accept this clarion call to submit the names of Rattlers who have made a transition to glory, since the 2017 National Alumni Association Convention, held in Baltimore, Maryland. Names of Fallen Rattlers will be received electronically @


The 2017-2018 Fallen Rattler Scroll will be presented reverently during the service on May 27, 2018. Please submit names not later than noon EDT on Thursday, May 24.


A Rattler’s Prayer

Precious Lord, you are our refuge and our protection.  We shall convene under our convention call in “The City Beautiful”, Orlando, Florida, May 23rd – 27th, 2018. 

God, please bless our time together so that we may be revived and reenergized to do your will.  Thank you for the excitement and enthusiasm, the intellect and ingenuity,

the leadership and leeway, and the plans and preparations that have gone into the upcoming convention.  Bless our alma mater on the highest of seven hills in Tallahassee, all that we have become, and all that we hope to be. We aim to be grateful and worthy stewards of the enormous resources that have been apportioned to us. As we don our orange and our green and travel with great anticipation from near, and from across the globe, our prayer is for the safe departure and arrival both to and fro, of each and every automobile, bus, train, plane, and vessel that shall transport Rattlers and supporters of our FAMUly.  Amen.

Keith L. Shannon, Chaplain, FAMU National Alumni Association (919) 673-4154
