On September 11, 2011, Citrus College students, faculty, staff and members of the community gathered to place flags in the shape of a heart to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States. Each flag represented a person who died in the World Trade Center.
Students, faculty and staff who returned to the college campus Monday September 12, discovered the flags and participated in a brief memorial ceremony. “I was deeply moved by the beautiful flag display,” commented Dr. Geraldine M. Perri, Citrus College superintendent/president. “This powerful visual and the memorial program on September 12 was an important educational experience for our students.”
“The September 11 commemorative event evoked poignant memories for many of us who remember that fateful day,” said Dr. Patricia Rasmussen, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees. “I was pleased to hear from members of the community who expressed gratitude to the college for its tribute to the fallen of September 11.”
