NSU SGA hosts Patriot Day remembrance

Northwestern State University’s Student Government Association hosted a Patriot Day program Friday, Sept. 9 in advance of the anniversary of 9/11. The remembrance took place at the flagpoles between Caspari Hall and the Student Services Center in the heart of campus where cadets from NSU’s ROTC program lowered the flags to half-staff and Avery Tullos of Benton sang the national anthem. Participants observed a moment of silence to honor individuals who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, their families and first responders.
