Montana’s 9/11 Memorial was born from an idea of City College faculty members, according to a press release from MSUB. The memorial features at its center a 612-pound steel I-beam salvaged from the destroyed World Trade Center. It has been visited by thousands and stands as a testament to Montana’s commitment to always remember, reflect, educate, and dedicate.
