FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
West Virginia University at Parkersburg will remember those whose lives were lost in the Sept. 11th tragedy with the solemn ringing of the campus bell.
In memoriam of the 9/11 victims, representatives of the campus' constituent groups will ring the main hallway campus bell beginning at 8:45 a.m., Thursday (Sept. 11) when the first plane struck the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001 and at the subsequent times when the other planes crashed. The campus will observe a moment of silence at each ringing.
Participating will be Rodney Parker, president of the classified Staff Council; Dr. Joseph Badgley, interim campus president; Amber Dickerson, Student Government representative, and Matt Rhoades, chair of the Faculty Senate.
As part of the observance, members of the campus Social Justice Committee and the Multicultural
Awareness Coalition will plant a memorial tree at a later date.
A similar ceremony is planned at the college's Jackson County Center in Ripley.
