National band fraternity Kappa Kappa Psi plans to conduct its own investigation into a reported hazing incident involving pledges to its Florida A&M chapter this past spring.
The fraternity’s national executive director, Alan L. Bonner, said his organization learned of the hazing allegation involving FAMU’s Delta Iota chapter through a Tallahassee Democrat article published Saturday. A statement posted Monday on the fraternity’s website said that no FAMU official so far had notified the national organization about the report.
“We are glad we are aware of it, so we can take appropriate action,” Bonner said in a telephone interview from the organization’s Stillwater, Okla., headquarters. “We plan to do our own investigation.”
The fraternity put its Florida A&M chapter on investigative hold Dec. 1 following the hazing-related death Nov. 19 of Marching 100 drum major Robert Champion.
