Yesterday was a tragic day for the Naval Academy and Houston. While in Annapolis to drop her son off for I-Day, Michelle Jordan Cummings, of Houston, was fatally shot by a stray bullet while sitting outside at the Graduate Hotel. Annapolis Police are still investigating to find the culprit. You can find more details with the local news coverage (CBS Baltimore and The Capital Gazette).
We can only imagine what the family is going through right now. The Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the Alumni Association shares our deepest sympathies and wishes to offer whatever support we can to Midshipman Candidate Leonard “Trey” Cummings III and his father during this difficult time.
Family friends started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover funeral expenses. Please contribute what you can. We are currently collaborating with the Parent’s Club to see what additional support we can provide and will let you know through the website, newsletters, and social media.
