This remnant of the antenna from the top of one of the towers is a grim reminder of 9 /11 at the Newseum Exhibit
As the Veritas and Journalism students know, advisor and teacher, Mrs. Lannin-Cotton traveled to the Inauguration in Washington this past weekend.

Every Four Years is an interesting exhibit on Presidential Campaigns and news coverage throughout the years.
The only newsman/photographer to die at the scene of the terrorist attacks was Bill Biggart who ran to the scene after seeing a cloud of smoke coming from the World Trade Center. His gear was found near the remains of the second tower’.
