This year marks the 15th anniversary of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Hobart and William Smith will commemorate the victims, their families and loved ones on Thursday, Sept. 8 and Friday, Sept. 9.
Beginning at 10 a.m. each day, volunteers stationed in the Scandling Campus Center will be available to guide HWS community members to the 9/11 Memorial Victim Database and provide materials to write notes to victims, their families and others affected by the attacks. The notes will be arranged on the front windows of the Scandling Campus Center in a public display of remembrance.
The HWS community is also invited to participate in a moment of silence on Friday morning at 10:28 a.m. on the front steps of the Scandling Campus Center.
In 2001, the HWS community lost three alumni in the attacks at the World Trade Center, all of whom worked for the financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald: Andrew H. Golkin ’93, who majored in economics, was a member of the football team, Kappa Sigma, Inter-fraternity Council and the International Business Club; Scott W. Rohner ’01, who majored in economics and played basketball and football; and Michael J. Simon ’83, P’11, P’13, who majored in economics, was a member of Theta Delta Chi and played ice hockey, lacrosse, tennis and golf.
