9-11 Memorial Service

Join NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson as he leads the campus community in a memorial service to recognize and honor all who perished on September 11, 2001, and all alumni and their families who have honorably served our country since the university's founding in 1887.

Sunday, September 11, 2011
Alumni Memorial Belltower
NC State Campus

The memorial service will begin promptly at 2 p.m.


Chandler Thompson | Student Body President
National Anthem | Lt. Ric A. Parmley of the NC State Police Department
Benny Suggs '69 | Retired Rear Admiral and Executive Director of the NC State Alumni Association
Chaplain | Army Capt. Rudy Stevens '98
First Responder  | Detective Charles P. Corr of NC State Public Safety
Randy Woodson | NC State Chancellor

The service will honor all alumni who served their country and community, including a special tribute to Navy Lt. Eric Cranford '92, who died at the Pentagon during the 9-11 attacks. The service will conclude with the placement of a wreath at the base of the Belltower, followed by a rifle salute, taps and flyover of F-15 jets.

The Alumni Memorial Belltower was chosen as the site for this service because it was built to honor those NC State alumni who died in World War I. Today, the Belltower stands tall in tribute to all alumni who have served their country, especially those who have given their lives.

Sponsored by the NC State Alumni Association with special assistance from the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Officer Training Corps.
