At 12:15 p.m. on Sept. 11, Wake Forest will hold a multi-faith moment of remembrance to honor the lives lost and pray for survivors who were greatly affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Open to the University community and the public, the 9/11 Moment of Remembrance will be held at the flagpole in Parking Lot C, next to Reynolda Hall, Benson University Center and Davis Residence Hall. Wake Forest Army ROTC will participate. It is sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain.
At numerous times throughout the morning, the University’s carillon in Wait Chapel will be heard. It will be heard seven times between 8:46 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. It will also be heard at the start of the 12:15 p.m. service.
Much earlier in the morning, another event will be held in remembrance of 9/11. At 6 a.m., members of the Army ROTC battalion and military science departments at Wake Forest, Winston-Salem State University and Salem College will climb 2,997 stairs at BB&T Field to pay tribute to each victim. The Climb to Remember is open to the public. All are welcome to participate.
