CU law school to host remembrance ceremony for 9/11 victims
The CU Law Alumni Board and the School of Law will hold a remembrance ceremony for the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The ceremony will be held at 12 p.m. on September 11 in the plaza of the Wolf Law Building.
John Carson, a member of the Law Alumni Board and a CU law graduate conceived the idea of the ceremony. Speakers will include: David Getches, dean of the law school, Larry Donner, fire chief and two members of the board of regents, Steve Bosley and Michael Carrigan. The American Legion Color Guard from Louisville will also be a part of the ceremony.
The ceremony is open to the public and students are encouraged to attend.
“Every one of us is living in a world that’s changed. Why it’s changed is more than anything else linked to this one day of terror, and to reflect on it seems only appropriate,” said Getches.
Organizers of the event think everyone should be involved, not just people who were directly impacted.
“This is especially true for students and young people who may not have been old enough in 2001 to comprehend the magnitude of what was happening,” said Getches.
The ceremony will begin in the plaza and move through the south door of the Wolf Law Building to the north yard where a plaque will be presented. The plaque will be dedicated in memory of the CU alumni who were victims of the September 11 attacks.
