1990s

1990 saw the arrival of the first Lockerbie Scholars, and the naming of the first cohort of Remembrance Scholars. On April 22, 1990, the University dedicated the Place of Remembrance – the permanent physical memorial to the 35 students returning home from study abroad through Syracuse University that were killed in the bombing. The Place of Remembrance consists of the Remembrance Wall, a semi-circular structure made of limestone and granite, bearing the names of each of the 35 students lost, and a circular stone bench that displays a plaque to Paula and Glenn Bouckley, a couple from Clay, New York who were also on Flight 103. Heather sent from Scotland was planted at the site. This memorial is directly behind the gateway to campus on the esplanade leading to the Hall of Languages. The Rose Laying Ceremony that concludes Remembrance Week each year is held at the Place of Remembrance.
