Time for some HBCU history making! Anyone who has ever witnessed an HBCU band performance knows the significance of the drum major. They're basically the hype person of the entire show, and they must always be on point; if not, the whole performance will crumble.

Now, for the first time in its history, one HBCU is bringing some girl power to the head of their band.

According to HBCU GameDay, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) has named Cori Bostic, a junior in FAMU's School of Journalism and Graphic Communication, as the first female drum major of its The Marching 100 band.

According to The Shadow League, The Marching 100 is not only an internationally known band but has performed at major events such as the Super Bowl, WrestleMania and Macy's Thanksgiving Day parades.

Congrats to Cori!
