UCF students remembered September 11 today with a ceremony at UCF’s Reflecting Pond, sponsored by the UCF College Republicans and Student Veterans Association.

UCF’s College Republicans gathered as early as 4 a.m. to place flags in the ground to symbolize and remember those lost during the nation’s deadliest terrorist attack that happened eight years ago today.

The ceremony, called “Never Forget,” started at 8:30 a.m. and included a patriotic performance by Haggerty High School’s Elite Show Choir, along with the presentation of the colors by UCF’s Army ROTC.

Guest speakers reflected on the events of 9/11 at the time that they happened.
