Clifton Lassiter, a former Norfolk State student passed away on Feb. 1 in Savannah, Georgia. Clifton battled leukemia prior to his passing. On campus, Clifton was a popular student with a passion for sports and modeling.
Whether giving a word of advice or working on his own passions, Clifton was a great friend and an inspiration to many. Those who knew him most knew that Clifton was also a pastor-elect and referred to as a prophet.
