W&L Community Remembers 9/11

— by on September 11th, 2015

Flags on the W&L campus are flying at half-staff today in remembrance of those who lost their lives 14 years ago on September 11, 2001. W&L alumni Rob Schlegel, of the Class of 1985, who died in the Pentagon, and James Gadiel, of the Class of 2000, who died in the World Trade Center, were among those lost.

Rob was on the staff of the chief of naval operations at the Pentagon and had been promoted to commander just weeks prior to the attack. James worked in the equities department of Cantor Fitzgerald, on the 103rd floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center.
