Remembering 911

September 2001 CCPA led a group of students, alumni, faculty, friends, and family to create a memorial of the events of September 11, 2001. The group placed an American flag on the Meadows Museum lawn to commemorate each of the 2,977 lives lost on that tragic day.

On this 20 year anniversary please take a moment to reflect on the events of 911 and how it changed so many.
