Nicole Fauster (L’20) met Cedric Asiavugwa (L’19), her Georgetown Law public interest mentor, in the fall of 2017, when she entered Georgetown Law as a member of its Public Interest Law Scholars program.
They were in the same mentorship group in PILS, later known as the Blume Public Interest Scholars Program. In her second year, as president of the Muslim Law Students Association, Fauster also worked with Cedric, as the friendly 3L worked in Campus Ministry.
“He was Campus Ministry’s go-to guy,” Fauster said. “I definitely saw him on a very regular basis, putting together programming…whenever you passed by Campus Ministry, he was at that table, doing work, assisting the chaplains. One of the reasons I would go to Campus Ministry when I was going from class to class was to say hi to Cedric. He is definitely going to be someone whose loss will be deeply felt.”
