Message from President Wilson Regarding the Passing of Elijah Cummings

Dear Morgan Family,

Our hearts are quite heavy this morning as we awaken to the news of the passing of The Honorable U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings. We mourn the loss of such an authentic, passionate and revered leader.
The City of Baltimore, the State of Maryland, and our nation, will forever be indebted to the legacy of this great public servant.

Morgan State University is deeply saddened by the loss of one our fiercest advocates and supporters. Beyond serving on the University’s Board of Regents, Rep. Cummings was not only a dear friend to Morgan, he was family. His wisdom, wise counsel and superb leadership will be greatly missed. I will miss him personally.

On behalf of the entire Morgan State University Family, I extend our deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers to his wife, Maya, and to the entire Cummings family and to his dedicated staff.

Rest In Peace, Congressman Cummings, Rest In Peace!

President Wilson
