CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Campbellsville University will host a special observance this Saturday evening for the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America. The special event will be Saturday, September 10, 2011, at 6:45pmET/5:45pmCT, prior to kick off of the university's Mid-South Conference cross-divisional football game against No. 18 Cumberland University of Lebanon, TN, at Finley Stadium's HIG Field, 204 Tiger Way, Campbellsville, KY.
During the observation, a number of emergency personnel, military and elected officials will gather at the 50-yard line for recognition, followed by a moment of silence and prayer by Dr. James Jones, pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and part-time church outreach special assistant at CU. The CU Tiger Marching Band will conclude the ceremony with the playing of "The Star Spangled Banner".
Special guests for the evening will be Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young, Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers and Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney, who assisted with forensics work in New York City following the attacks 10 years ago.
Active members and veterans of our military armed services units are encouraged to attend and be recognized, including Taylor County's National Guard and Army Reserves. All military service members will receive free admission to the ballgame along with their spouse and children. To be admitted free, you must be in uniform or present proper identification.

"All of us at Campbellsville University want to pause and remember the events of September 11, 2001 when our nation was attacked by terrorists resulting in the loss of around 3,000 lives. We honor those 'first responders' who responded that day, and in the following days, with such compassion and commitment without concern for their own safety and health," said Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University.
"In addition, we want to honor those who have served in our nation's military in defense of our freedom and liberty that we so often take for granted as Americans. It is a tribute to these many men and women that we also recognize, on this occasion, those in our own community who serve, day after day, in law enforcement and emergency services as well as the military.
