(Oct 20, 2003) — A student art display and a remembrance ceremony hosted by Staff Council were two
campus events held on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Students in a general education art class used a variety of materials‚ chalk‚ wire‚ cardboard and photography among them‚ to mark the second anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon‚ as well as to remember those who perished aboard Flight 93. The student art was displayed in the quad area in front of the Pilcher Building.
Meanwhile‚ Staff Council hosted their annual Unity Gathering at the Legacy Gazebo. There was a moment of silence followed by the pledge of allegiance‚ which was interpreted in sign language by Staff Council President Cecilia Peyton. Added to this year’s ceremony were three “unity books‚” in which participants wrote messages of sympathy and encouragement to be sent to elected officials in each of the areas affected by the attacks: New York‚ Washington and Somerset County‚ Pennsylvania.
