W&L Events to Observe 10th Anniversary of 9/11

Washington and Lee University will observe the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks with two different events — a prayer vigil and a panel presentation and discussion.

The prayer vigil will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11, in front of Lee Chapel on campus. The Rev. John Talley, minister of the Reformed University Fellowship (RUF), will lead the event, which is sponsored by the College Democrats and the College Republicans.

On Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m., three members of the W&L faculty will lead the panel discussion, “Ten Years Later,” in the Hillel House Multi-purpose Room.

The panelists will be Ayse Zarakol, assistant professor of politics; Mark Drumbl, the Class of 1975 Alumni Professor of Law and director of the Transnational Law Clinic; and Bob Strong, the William Lyne Wilson Professor of Politics and interim provost.

Both events are open to the public at no charge.
