Valencia’s Osceola campus to honor 9/11 victims with massive flag display

To honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Valencia College’s Osceola Campus will again partner with the Rotary Club of Lake Nona to stage a dramatic display of flags on its expansive lawn – one flag for each of the nearly 3,000 lives lost on that tragic day.  

The Osceola campus flag display will also serve as the site for Osceola County’s Sept. 11 countywide memorial service, which will include participants from the Osceola County’s Sheriff’s Office, Osceola County Emergency Services, Kissimmee Police and Fire Departments, St. Cloud Police and Fire Departments, and the Osceola County Veteran’s Council. Osceola County Sheriff Russell Gibson will be the featured speaker. In addition, Gina Marie Incandela will perform the national anthem.

The ceremony will be held at on Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. in the courtyard behind building 4.
