Personal Reflection

What were you doing on 9/11? (Or, What was your interviewee doing on 9/11?)

In 2001 I was associate chair of the Humanities & Social Sciences department at our Daytona Beach campus, a position I had held since 1991. Before I left home for the office, I heard while listening to NPR the morning of September 11 that a plane had struck one of the Twin Towers in New York City.

How did 9/11 affect you personally and or professionally?

I recall the following days or weeks on campus marked by trailers (many of them!) parked across Clyde Morris, satellite dishes everywhere----CNN and other major networks----because it had been reported that one (or more) of the terrorists had received flight training at ERAU. This was eventually disproven, but it certainly created a media storm.
