Bostic, an Atlanta native, is a junior in the School of Journalism and Graphic Communication. Bostic has played the piccolo with the Marching 100 for the past two years.

Although Bostic was unable to talk about Tuesday’s announcement, many Rattlers expressed their love and support via social media.

It’s safe to say, many in the FAMU family near and far were stunned, surprised and shocked by the news. Some even showed outrage on Twitter.

Tay Malcolm, a member of the Marching 100, tweeted:

”The FIRST FEMALE drum major of The Marching 100!”

He went on to tweet, “I don’t think you all know how big this is and how hard she has been working to achieve everything she has achieved. She deserves every blessing coming her way.”

Bostic is also a member of the Beta Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

After news broke on social media, her sorority sisters flooded social media showing how proud and ecstatic they were for her.
