A Tribute to Tamar Kaplan

IES Abroad is saddened by the death of Tamar Kaplan, a junior from Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, Calif., and an alum of the fall 2012 IES Abroad program in Quito, Ecuador.  Tamar died January 7th from injuries suffered in a car accident while traveling independently several days earlier.

Tamar was remembered by those who studied with her in Quito as a happy, smiling, friendly student, and as a good friend to all those she came to meet.

“IES Abroad extends to the Kaplan family our most sincere condolences.  Our hearts go out to Tamar’s family and friends during this very sad and difficult time,” said Dr. Mary Dwyer, president and CEO of IES Abroad.
