On Saturday, Sept. 11, Lock Haven University held events in memory of the lives lost on September 11, 2001.
To honor the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 events, the LHU Student Veteran Alliance (SVA) organized the placing of 2,996 flags on the lawn of the Poorman Commons, representing each of the victims who lost their lives during the attacks. At 8:45 a.m., the SVA began their ceremony at the amphitheater, with the singing of the National Anthem was performed by LHU student, Sydney Schramm, followed by SVA members Schramm, Casey Hibbard and Shannen Roy, recalling the events of that day.
At 9:01 a.m., the Fredericks Family Carillon chimed 20 times to represent the years that have passed since the attacks. The LHU community participated in a campus-wide moment of silence at 9:03 a.m., the time of the second terror strike on the World Trade Center.
