High Noon: Leaving An Impression

It is impossible to condense someone’s life into a few hundred words, but Karen Pohl’s chapter is still being written as her legacy lives on in the people who knew her. It can be difficult to find the words to convey emotion in the midst of a tragedy, but those who knew Pohl know what to say:  “Someone who wanted to make the world a better place.” “Someone who was a ray of sunshine in any situation.” “Someone who was a great spirit with a servant’s heart.” Pohl, a University of Idaho senior in biology, was active in volunteerism as the student coordinator for the ASUI Center for Volunteerism and Social Action. She suffered a stroke April 9 that resulted in her death early Saturday morning. But even in death, Pohl continues to have a positive impact on people’s lives — as an organ donor, her generosity will save a 17-year-old boy/UIdaho Argonaut Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Are you an organ donor?
