9/11 Flag Stitching Ceremony
In recognition of the September 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution by the founding fathers, Montclair State University celebrated Constitution Day on September 14 with a day of extraordinary events. The opening ceremony was held in the Conference Center in University Hall followed by a flag-stitching ceremony involving FDNY firefighters, and local service heroes nominated by the public for the honor of being able to contribute to the restoration of the National 9/11 Flag. This famous flag was destroyed in the collapse of the World Trade Center in 2001, but is gradually being restored. Participants in the Montclair State ceremony helped to sew the New Jersey restorative patch onto the flag. Montclair State was the second stop on a tour planned for the National 9/11 Flag. The flag will make its way to all 50 states with Montclair State being the only university in the nation on the tour, and the only place in New Jersey where the flag-stitching ceremony was held.
As we remember the tragic loss of lives on September 11, 2001 we honor our MSU alumni who perished that day: Jean DePalma '80, Robert "Bobby" Hughes '01, Dorota Kopiczko '99, Joseph Pick '03, Steven Schlag '82, Khalid Shahid '99, Dennis Taormina, Jr. '88 and Shari Kandell, a student who was made an honorary alumna, posthumously.
