The UNC General Alumni Association on Wednesday will hold its annual memorial service for the six alumni who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial Garden on Stadium Drive near the George Watts Hill Alumni Center takes place each Sept. 11 between 8:46 and 9:03 a.m., the times when the hijacked planes hit the two World Trade Center towers.
The event is open to the public.
The memorial — a gift from the class of 2005, which had just entered UNC when the tragedy took place — is framed by a rectangle of low stone walls with a plaque bearing the names of the lost alumni: Karleton Fyfe ’92, Mary Lou Hague ’96, Andrew King ’83, Ryan Kohart ’98, Dora Menchaca ’78 (MSPH) and Christopher Quackenbush ’79.
