HOUGHTON -- The Iranian community at Michigan Tech, with support from International Programs and Services and the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, will host a memorial ceremony for Sanaz Nezami, a newly admitted graduate student who passed away after falling victim to domestic assault in Dollar Bay. The service will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28, in MUB Ballroom B on the Michigan Tech campus.

According to an article in the Huffington Post, ""Nezami's family gave permission for her heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, pancreas and small intestine to be donated, and after her death they were transplanted to seven people in the United States, a rare occurrence, according to the Associated Press."

According to the article, Nezami had planned to pursue a doctorate in environmental engineering at Michigan Tech.
