On Saturday, March 16, Lydia Buckner, a senior administrative professional in Graduate Studies and Admissions, died. She was 43. 

“We lost a committed and caring member of our community with the passing of Lydia Buckner,” said Susan Cozzens, vice provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Affairs. “Her brother-in-law described Lydia as ‘stubborn, stubborn, stubborn.’ This trait was a great asset to us, because Lydia knew what would work and would stand firm until everyone was on board.”

Buckner began working at Tech in 2000, serving units including human resources, graduate co-op, and graduate admissions. She was active around campus and was a member of Georgia Tech’s Breast Cancer Survivors Group.

Buckner was buried in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.
