In previous years, the Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholars at Syracuse University have remembered those lost on Pan Am Flight 103 with events and activities held during a single week each fall semester. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the need to limit in-person gatherings, Remembrance will be different in academic year 2020-21.
The annual Rose-Laying ceremony and Remembrance Convocation have been postponed. It is the Scholars’ hope and intention to hold these two events during the Spring 2021 semester, as health and safety circumstances allow.
The Scholars began meeting remotely in late August to plan virtual events and programs that will occur each month throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. Additionally, the Scholars will collaborate with Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel and the Victims of Pan Am Flight 103, Inc. family group for virtual annual memorial services on December 21.
Information about all these events and activities will be posted on the Events page of the Remembrance website as details become available.
