Kingston, ON- The AMS mourns the loss of Amir Moradi, a Queen’s Undergraduate student, who was on board Ukraine International Flight PS752.  

Although words do little to capture the pain of any loss, our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to the friends, family, and all our peers at Queen’s who have been impacted by this devastating news. We stand united with our peers and colleagues, particularly those in the Canadian-Iranian community, in grieving the loved ones lost in this accident.  

A vigil will be held tomorrow, the 10th of January, at 5 PM in the McLaughlin Room in the JDUC.
