On Friday, October 18, 2019, Mr. Alexander Benedict Cummings, Jr, made a donation of LD $2.5 Million ( Two and a half Million) Liberian Dollars to the Nimba County Community College( NCCC) towards the construction of the college’s Engineering Complex. The donation was made by Mr. Cummings at conclusion of his  two-day  tour of Nimba, mainly around the area within the proximity of Sanniquellie City ostensibly to give tacit support to the Senatorial bid of Mr. Taa  Wongbe of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), which the former heads as the Political Leader. In his presentation remarks, he stated that he decided to contribute to the progress of the college because investing in young people is critical to the sustainability of any nation. He further recognized the efforts of others, including me, in having his considered NCCC in his donation plan. The President of the Community College, Dr. Edward Wonkeryor, expressed profound gratitude to Mr. Cummings on behalf of the NCCC family and hoped it won’t be the last. Prior to the indoor  program, Mr. Cummings and his entourage had a brief stopover in the office of President Wonkeryor.

The tour started in Gompa City on the 17th instant during which he had tete-a-tete with, at least 7 influential business men and women. Following said successful interaction, he proceeded to Sanniquellie where he visited a number of influentials before hosting a cross-section of Sanniquellie residents to a dinner at a local hotel.
