September 11, 2003

Albany- Georgia Southwestern University came to a halt tonight to join the nation in remembering September 11th.

More than 100 students, professors, and administrators gathered for a candlelight service in the heart of the campus to remember the victims and their loved. Students say at times like this, we should also think of the troops still serving in the Middle East.

"When so many people are affected by a situation like this, our nation is at war basically, and for students to come out and support our troops mainly was why we had such a good turn out tonight," said Summer Willis, a senior at Georgia Southwestern. "Everybody is effected by this with family members and friends."

President Michael Hanes told students they should work to make a difference in the world, following in the footsteps of South Georgians like President and Mrs. Carter and Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller.
