Lake Superior State University invites the community to come together and remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. The commemoration takes place on Wednesday, September 11th at 10:00 a.m. at Pleger Commons (located between the Administration and Brady Hall buildings).
“We stand united and reflect on the tragic events that took place eighteen years ago,” LSSU President, Dr. Rodney Hanley, stated. “On Patriot Day, we shall honor the memory of those who lost their lives, as well as the heroism displayed by first responders and citizens alike. We will never forget.”
The commemoration begins with a Coast Guard Honor Guard march. LSSU asks that all rise for the singing of the national anthem by Patricia Guild. The Coast Guard Honor Guard will then present the National Ensign and Coast Guard flag. After which, representatives from LSSU’s Student Government, Senior Management, and Staff will speak. The ceremony will conclude with a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
The entire event will last approximately thirty minutes. Parking is available in Visitors Lots D and K. LSSU asks you to RSVP on Facebook if you wish to join this event, and arrive prior to 10:00 a.m.
