MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — This Monday, on the 16th anniversary of 9/11, MSU Billings will host its annual remembrance ceremony. The event, which commences at 7:30 AM, will be held at Montana’s 9/11 Memorial on the City College campus of MSUB.

 

Retired Billings Chief Paul Dextras will speak and the 9/11 First Responder Scholarship will be presented. The ceremony is free and open to the public. Men and women of our armed services, veterans, National Guard, first-responders, and service personnel, as well as the media are invited to join in the remembrance.

 

Montana’s 9/11 Memorial at City College was born from an idea of two faculty members. The memorial features at its center a 612-pound steel I-beam salvaged from the destroyed World Trade Center. The Montana 9/11 Memorial has been visited by thousands and stands as testament to Montana’s commitment to remember, reflect, educate and dedicate. 

 

For questions regarding the remembrance ceremony please contact Shannon Wilcox, Director of University Relations, at 657-2243. More information about Montana’s 9/11 Memorial can be found at www.msubillings.edu/911memorial.
