Patriot Day ObservationBy Pam Linkous • Sep 9th, 2009 • Category: Campus News
The students who arrived on campus this fall fresh from high school were in the fifth grade on that warm, clear September day when terror and death united this country and changed our perspective of the world forever. Patriot Day is a somber observation that ensures no generation will forget the tragedy of September 11th, 2001. New River Community College will observe Patriot Day with a wreath laying ceremony at the Godbey Hall Flag Poles at 11:30am. There will be a similar event at the Mall Site at the same time.
About Pam Linkous:
Editor of my high school newspaper back when papers were carved into stone tablets and delivered by oxen, I now spend my days unraveling the mysteries of Blackboard (like, you mean my instructor has my paper NOW...I just accidently pressed enter....oh noooooo) and trying to understand how textbooks today cost more than tuition did when I went to college the first time. Despite needing several more hours per day to get everything done (who do I e-mail, Facebook, blog about that?), I still love to write and am willing to take on assignments that do not require staying up past my bedtime.
