 WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 19, 2019)– Today, Thursday, September 19, 2019, Congressman David Price (D-NC), issued the following statement on the death of Dr. Emily England Clyburn:

 “Lisa and I are saddened to learn of Dr. Emily England Clyburn's passing.  Our good wishes are with our dear friend, Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, and their beautiful family during this difficult time.

 Emily Clyburn leaves an enduring legacy of service to her home state of South Carolina and to the nation.  She and Jim met as civil rights activists, fighting for justice and expanded opportunity. She had a distinguished career as a public school and medical librarian and, with Jim, generously supported the Honors College at South Carolina State University.

 I join my colleagues in the House of Representative in standing alongside Majority Whip Clyburn and his family during this time of mourning, remembrance, and gratitude.”
