Owens Campus Honors Sept. 11 with Flag Ceremony


Georgetown – Delaware Technical Community College’s Owens Campus honored Patriot Day on Thursday, Sept. 11 with a flag ceremony outside the Student Services Center prior to the start of the inaugural Run, White & Blue 5K, which benefitted a scholarship for veterans to attend the College.

The ceremony consisted of remarks by the College President Dr. Mark Brainard, Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Melissa Rakes, and Col. Mike Berry of the Delaware National Guard. Robert Karpin, Campus Activities Board president, led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance, while Tina Huebner, Student Government Association President, performed the national anthem. After a moment of silence, those in attendance placed small American flags in the ground around the flagpole to honor those who were lost in Sept. 11, 2001.
