University Observance of the 9/11 Anniversary

September 8, 2011

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

As the nation prepares to remember those who lost their lives 10 years ago in the 9/11 tragedies, the University will pay tribute to the six Carolina alumni who died on that terrible day.

On Sunday morning, the Morehead-Patterson Bell Tower will toll its bells for one minute beginning at 10 a.m. to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001, in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa. At the same time, Douglas Dibbert, president of the General Alumni Association, will join me in placing flowers at the 9/11 Memorial Garden established on campus by the Class of 2005. The garden's cornerstone bears a plaque with the names of our fallen alumni: Karleton Douglas Beye Fyfe, Mary Lou Hague, Andrew Marshall King, Ryan Ashley Kohart, Dora Menchaca, and Christopher Quackenbush. The garden is located off the brick walkway next to the George Watts Hill Alumni Center along the Kenan Stadium side of Stadium Drive.

If you would like to be there when the bells toll or we place the flowers, please join us. There is no program – just these simple acts of remembrance.

I also encourage you to watch a video tribute to the 9/11 anniversary now posted on the University’s homepage.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this important anniversary.

Sincerely,

Holden Thorp
