Cummings served on WVNCC’s board from 2001-2004 and served as its chair from 2012-2016. He was reappointed in 2007 and served continuously until 2017 at which time his eligibility for service concluded.

“I have cherished serving on Northern’s Board of Director’s alongside of Dr. Cummings,” said WVNCC’s Board of Governors Chair Brann Altmeyer. “He has been vital to furthering our mission and he will be greatly missed.”

In addition to his service to WVNCC, Cummings is the Pastor of Bethlehem Apostolic Temple. He was appointed in July by Governor Jim Justice to the West Virginia Health Care Authority.

“I cannot begin to thank Dr. Cummings enough for his years of service to Northern,” commented Dr. Vicki L. Riley, president of WVNCC. “His commitment to WVNCC and our students has been remarkable and will not be forgotten.”
