Patriot Day commemoration

Each year for Patriot Day, Mizzou hosts a public tribute and wreath-laying ceremony in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 individuals who lost their lives on September 11.

This year, to honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Mizzou has partnered with the City of Columbia for a special event. A first for our campus and broader community, this event includes a presentation of the colors by the Joint Services Color Guard and City Honor Guards on Francis Quadrangle, as well as a helicopter flyover by MU Health Care.

I am honored that Provost Latha Ramchand will be speaking on behalf of our university. The Mizzou Football Team and I will be standing with our Tiger family in spirit from Kentucky. Because no matter where we are in the world, we commemorate this day as a proud community of Tigers — to remember those we lost and recommit ourselves to building a better world in their honor.
