Florida Memorial University has appointed Castell Bryant as its acting president, the school announced.

The Miami Gardens university said Bryant will be standing in for interim president Michelle Howard-Vital, who is on medical leave.

Bryant was FMU’s interim chief executive officer and has a long record of experience in leadership positions in South Florida education and at historically black colleges and universities. She served as president of Miami Dade College’s North and Medical campuses, was interim president at Florida A&M and interim vice president for academic affairs at Bethune-Cookman.
