Office of the President
September 26, 2013
Today, our hearts are saddened to learn of the passing of a human, social and civil rights legend, and a woman of great dignity. Mrs. Evelyn Gibson Lowery, Founder of S.C.L.C. WOMEN, Inc., and wife of civil rights leader, the Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, passed peacefully overnight in her Atlanta home surrounded by her family and husband of almost 70 years.
On behalf of our entire GPTC community, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family. We will remember the tremendous contributions and sacrifices she made in the advancement of equality and the fight for justice for all people, especially women, around the world.
Please keep Dr. Lowery, their three daughters and entire family in your hearts, thoughts and prayers.
Dr. Jabari Simama
