Indiana State mourns passing of alumna Eva Kor, '90

July 4, 2019

Eva Kor's life and work is a testament to the power of forgiveness. The path to forgiveness is not easy, nor is the quest to spread truth. Both, however, are powerful agents of change, and that is what Eva Kor steadfastly spent her life doing -- changing lives with her message.

"Eva stands as one of the tallest and strongest Sycamores. Our Indiana State family is devastated at the news of her passing, but we know her legacy of forgiveness will live on for generations to come," said Indiana State University President Deborah J. Curtis.

Kor is a 1990 graduate of Indiana State. She was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2017. Plans are underway for a memorial service on the Indiana State campus.
