THOMASVILLE,  GA (WALB) - Thomas University will hold it's 9-11 Commemoration ceremony Thursday. It's being held on the 10th because students won't be in class Friday.

Last year more than 100 people showed up to hear to military speakers and to remember the tragic events on September 11, 2001.

The ceremony gives the community a chance to come together and recognize the people who have died in the war since the attack.

"We want to remember them and the families that were involved with this. We also want to keep a reminder for the whole community that we need to stay vigilant and aware of what can happen," said John Rainey, Student Life Associate Director.

The ceremony will begin at 9 in the morning on the TU campus and should last about thirty minutes. The guest speaker for the event will be a retired U.S. Army Col.
