Arcadia University Mirror Room in Grey Towers Castle now bears the name of one of the school’s most dedicated alumnae, writes Andrea Walls for the Arcadia University News.
More than 125 members of the Arcadia community gathered on Jan. 16 for the dedication of the Laura Minerva Korman Mirror Room.
The announcement was made by Arcadia President Ajay Nair and Korman’s husband, James.
Many members of Korman’s family were present for the naming announcement, including her sons, Henry and William, and daughter, Josephine.
They were joined by family friends, Arcadia students, alumni, and staff.
“The impact that Laura had on the Arcadia community is renowned,” said Nair. “She cared deeply for students and wanted to ensure that Arcadians valued their learning experiences as much as she cherished her own.”
Korman inspired the Arcadia University community with her compassionate leadership and generosity. She served on the Alumni Board of Directors and co-chaired the Class President’s Committee.
She also expanded scholarship opportunities for students and the enhanced campus facilities. For this she received the Golden Disc for Meritorious Service Award and the Mary Louise Armstrong Wolf Award.
