911atCollegeoftheOzarks
College of the Ozarks will honor the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack with a special ceremony on Monday, Sept. 12, at 9 a.m., at the “Lest We Forget” 9/11 Memorial, located next to the C of O Fire Department on the College of the Ozarks campus on James Forsythe Drive.

The official commemoration will be held on Monday to allow C of O and S of O students to attend and give honor and respect to those who have died in defense of this country and for the safety of its citizens. Their attendance serves as part of their educational experience.

The College invites all area emergency personnel, first responders, and the general public to participate in the brief ceremony on Monday.

“This year, we are honoring those who fought in the War on Terror after 9/11,” said Bryan Cizek, director of patriotic activities.

The College will honor Special Warfare Operator Senior Chief (SEAL) Thomas Arthur Ratzlaff, who was killed when a coalition CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011. Ratzlaff was assigned to an East Coast based Special Warfare Unit. He was on his 12th deployment in support of the War on Terror with nine previous deployments to Afghanistan and one to Iraq.

Ratzlaff is from Green Forest, Arkansas. Family members of Ratzlaff, including his mother and sister, Nancy Ann (Anderson) Ratzlaff and Julie Adams, will raise the 9/11 flag as part of the solemn ceremony.

On Sunday, Sept. 11, approximately 3,000 American flags will be displayed on the Alumni Lawn at the front entrance of the campus.

More about the Memorial

The memorial contains one of the remaining remnants of the World Trade Center structure, and the steel column is a permanent part of the memorial.

Retired police officer Tommy McHale donated the mangled piece of steel column from the World Trade Center. McHale wanted to honor the 37 fallen men and women officers from the Port Authority for New York and New Jersey who perished on 9/11.

The structure is referred to as “St. Michael’s 37.” St. Michael is considered the patron saint of police officers and represents strength to face the threat of evil and imminent danger.

For additional information, contact Bryan Cizek, director of patriotic activities, at (417) 690-2232.

These two country music legends will give you a night to remember as they bring back some of their chart topping songs completed with memories of the 1980 hit movie, Urban Cowboy. Gilley and Lee have earned an outstanding 38 Chart singles with 20 #1 hits including Gilley’s “Room Full of Roses”, “Don’t the Girls all Get Prettier at Closing Time,” and Lee’s “Cherokee Fiddle” and “Lookin’ for Love”. Sharing 10 years of their music careers together, these two are sure to put on an evening of great music, fun memories, and incredible entertainment!
Clay Cooper said, “We are really going to miss Mel this year! He has kept our theatre crew laughing and my boys love him. We ask for continued prayers for a full recovery for our buddy.” As for the Urban Cowboy Reunion, Cooper added, “I had the pleasure of working with Johnny Lee during my Country Tonite days and I’ve spent a lot of time with my pal, Mickey, during the tragic loss of our great friend Joey Riley. I’m looking forward to seeing these two country music legends appear on stage together.”
Again, we ask you for continued prayers for Mel and his family. We hope to see Mel on stage again soon!
