Troy University Student Government Association preparing for 9/11 remembrance and Hurricane Ida relief effort.

Troy University’s Student Government Association is making plans to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks and to help those affected by Hurricane Ida.

The SGA has remembrance ceremony planned for the morning of September 11th on the John Lewis Quad where members of the Troy University community will read the names of those who lost their lives in the attacks twenty years ago.

“We just want to make sure the students are aware of how important this is,” says organizer and SGA Senator Morgan Long. “This is the 20th anniversary of 9-11. We just want to make make it more impactful.”

In addition the SGA is working on coordinating relief efforts on campus for those affected by Hurricane Ida.

“Our hearts are really concerned for those in Mississippi and Louisiana from this hurricane,” say SGA President Maxwell George. “We’re working on potentially right now getting together some type of collection or whether it’s money or food. I became friends this summer with the SGA president at university of Louisiana Lafayette and they were also impacted by the hurricane so we’re going to start talking back and forward to see what we can do for their SGA. We play ULL at home this year so that’ll be a great opportunity where we can give back to them.”
