I am so sad to hear of the passing of Dr. Eva Evans. Dr. Evans is a legend in Lansing, especially in our schools. She was a classroom teacher, building administrator, division director, assistant superintendent and the first female deputy superintendent of Lansing Public Schools.
I was honored to join the Lansing community when the Eva Evans Welcome Center was named for her and, as I said on that day, I know that all Lansing students will benefit from the work that she did for so many years. She was a tremendous leader here and internationally, serving as the International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Eva was a great advisor and friend, and we will all miss her positive influence here in Lansing.
