In a statement issued through a spokesman, George's family said they "hold no hatred" toward Thurman.

"Ruth lived out her deep faith in Jesus by loving and serving others, leaving a legacy of Christ-centered kindness and sacrifice," the family said.

"She was the beloved baby of our family. We grieve with hope. We hold no hatred towards the perpetrator, but our hope is no other girl would be harmed in this way and for a mother to never experience this type of heartache."

University faculty and staff described George, who liked to be called "Ruthie," as an exceptional and engaged student.

"Ruthie not only possessed book smarts, but she was a genuine person," Tracy Baynard, an associate professor of kinesiology and nutrition, said in a profile of George published this week by the university.

"She was one I could look at in class to determine if my lecture was making sense or not, and she always provided a laugh or a smirk at my goofy jokes," Baynard said.

Michele McCrillis, assistant dean of the Honors College, said, "Some people can light up a room, and Ruthie was one of those people."

McCrillis taught George in a documentary photography and film seminar and said she "enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to explore and experiment with ideas outside her major."

"But it's her smile that I remember, and will miss, the most," she said.
