Kira Goodwin’03: It is with a heavy heart that we share news of the loss of our alumna Kira Goodwin'03 due to a tragic avalanche accident on December 31, 2017. Kira, of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada lived a vibrant but short 32 years. She was taken from this world by an avalanche while backcountry skiing in the west Kootenay mountains on December 31st, 2017. She had quite a love for adventure, was an avid traveler, exceptional athlete and a lover of nature and wildlife. She was passionate about living and had a smile and personality that were larger than life. She made family everywhere she went, not just friends.
Kira loved her career in nursing and used her skills to serve in Neonatal Intensive Care, the Chemotherapy Clinic and the Operating Room. She was an ambassador for Canada everywhere she traveled, and loved to immerse herself deeply in culture. She was generous and kind in life and death. Although Kira could not be saved, she was an organ donor and therefore directly responsible for supporting the lives of others.
Kira was one of a kind and will never be forgotten. To support Kira’s Legacy Fund, please click on the link below.

Her memorial was held at CAC in the theatre and she was then honored in a moment of silence as students, teachers and faculty gathered to place her memorial plaque and flowers in CAC’s memorial garden. Amna was a talented, bright young girl who will be missed yet never forgotten.
