The College’s 9/11 ceremony outside the Whitney Applied Technology Center.

The campus community paused to commemorate the 15 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our nation.

A ceremony was held on the south side of the Whitney Applied Technology Center. The event began with the placement of a wreath near the College’s 9/11 plaque. Dr. Julie White, the College’s Vice President of Student Engagement and Learning Support, delivered remarks. Professor of Music David J. Rudari, D.M.A., led attendees in the National Anthem and God Bless America. During the ceremony each of the names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 attacks were read. Dave Wall, Director of Campus Safety and Security was the first to begin reading names.

The names of the victims were also read at the Clock Tower on the West Quad and in the Gordon Student Center at the Alumni Faces panel of Wendy Faulkner who died that day.

    I remember what I was doing that day but my classmate, 1978 from Liverpool High School, was on the second plane when it hit WTC II. I remember him well from high-school musicals, such a nice guy. I cried all week.
