The NCLC family is deeply saddened by the death of Congressman Elijah Cummings. We had the pleasure of recognizing Congressman Cummings with the 2019 Presidential Legacy Award during our annual summit for collegiate student body presidents this past summer, honoring his decades of public service following his time as student body president at Howard University and his significant impact in his industry.

At Howard, Cummings also graduated as a member of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Society in 1973 with a degree in Political Science.

He was 68. Our thoughts are with the Cummings family and his team.
