PHOTO CAPTION FOR SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY 9-11 MEMORIAL DEDICATION

 

NEW 9-11 MEMORIAL DEDICATED ON SRU CAMPUS: More than 50 students, faculty, administrators and alumni gathered today [Sept. 11] on the Slippery Rock University campus to dedicate a 9-11 memorial given to the university through donations by the class of 2004-05. The tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, took place days after the arrival of that freshman class and continues to serve as a unifying force. Here Lindsay Mcghee, former SRU Student Government Association vice president for advancement, and SRU President Robert Smith cut the ribbon to formally place the monument designed by Sean Swihart, a Slippery Rock artist, and fabricated at Sherman Welding and Fabricating located in Slippery Rock. The memorial, located near the University Union, features two, 10-foot tall, stainless-steel slabs representing the twin towers of New York City’s World Trade Center, placed on a five-sided base representing the Pentagon in Washington., D.C. A large Flight 93 sign, symbolizing the flight that crashed outside of Shanksville in western Pennsylvania, is part of the design along with an American eagle. At night, two light beams, one from each tower, project representing those who lost their lives in the 2001, attacks.
