Expanded 9/11 Memorial in Indianapolis one year away

first_img Facebook Google+ By Network Indiana – September 11, 2020 0 303 Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Pinterest Facebook By TSgt Michael Holzworth [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons One year from now, you will likely be able to make the pilgrimage to an expanded 9 11 memorial in Indianapolis, which is now the Indiana 9 11 Memorial. For eight years the beams from the World Trade Center have reached toward the sky on West Ohio St., in downtown Indianapolis. The hope is that an expansion will make it a destination for all Hoosiers.“What we’re really interested in is to make sure that the generations that come after us, that they understand about why things happened,” said Brigadier General Stewart Goodwin,USAF (retired), exec. director of the Indiana War Memorials.“We’re in a time in our country where monuments have gotten a bad name because they didn’t meet a certain criteria. But, the fact is monuments are very important because they make physical records of what happened in our country.”The physical record for Indiana will be bigger and will contain a memorial to the members of the military who have been killed fighting terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001, and a memorial to Lt. Gen Tim Maude, a Hoosier and the most senior Army officer killed in action since World War II.“He was the…deputy chief of staff for personnel for the entire Army. Think about that, active Guard and Reserve, this was the officer in charge of all those personnel matters for all of those soldiers,” said Goodwin, who grew up knowing Maude.Maude was killed when American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the west side of the Pentagon.Goodwin said a piece of Indiana limestone from the wall of the Pentagon will also be mounted in the new space.He said that for the first few years of the memorial’s existence the military was not memorialized, in favor of a focus on first responders. So, the Indiana War Memorials Commission did not take on the responsibility of oversight when asked.“We didn’t want to step on anybody’s toes,” said Goodwin.But, in 2016, the commission relented because of the 5,000 military members who had been killed in combat.“Adding the military aspect of this takes nothing away from the police, fire, and the emergency medical services folks. What they went through and what they did, they will always be heroes.”Goodwin asked that people who are interested join the commission for an event at 10 a.m. Friday, at the memorial. The goal is to raise $450,000 for the memorial upgrades and to unveil them for the 20th anniversary.

Search for Ed School dean begins

first_imgDear Colleagues and Friends,As you know, Kathy McCartney will be concluding her service as dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) at the end of the spring term, having been named to become president of Smith College next July.  Kathy has led the Ed School with extraordinary energy and effectiveness since 2005.  It will be one of my highest priorities in the time ahead to identify an outstanding successor to Kathy and to help sustain the School’s momentum and progress through this time of transition.  Many thanks in advance to all of you whose efforts I know will be essential toward that end.Consistent with Harvard’s usual practice in dean searches, I have invited a cross-section of the Ed School’s senior faculty to work with me as an advisory group for the search.  I am grateful to the following HGSE faculty members for agreeing to serve: Monica Higgins, Nancy Hill, Thomas Kane, Robert Kegan, Nonie Lesaux, Bridget Terry Long, Richard Murnane, Jack Shonkoff, and Hiro Yoshikawa.  The group will also include several other Harvard faculty members with complementary perspectives on the work of the Ed School: Christopher Avery (Kennedy School), Amy Edmondson (Business School), Jennifer Hochschild (FAS – Government), Lawrence Katz (FAS – Economics), and Dutch Leonard (Business School/Kennedy School).  We will meet regularly in the coming months both to consider the opportunities and challenges facing the School and to discuss prospective candidates for dean.The advisory group’s work will be part of a wider outreach process to which I hope many of you will contribute.   Provost Alan Garber and I will pursue opportunities to solicit advice from the broader faculty, students, staff, alumni, and knowledgeable others.  I know from past searches how much the process will benefit from such informed, candid counsel.  With that in mind, I encourage you to send me your thoughts about HGSE and its future, about the key qualities to seek in a new dean, and about individuals at Harvard or elsewhere whom you believe should be considered as possible candidates for dean.You may send your observations and nominations, in confidence, by e-mail to [email protected] or by letter addressed to me at Massachusetts Hall.  I will read all your thoughts with interest and care.  You should also feel free to be in touch with Marc Goodheart ([email protected]) or Stephanie Gumble ([email protected]), who will be assisting me with the search.Warm wishes for the new year — and thanks for your advice during this time of transition and opportunity for the HGSE.Sincerely,Drew Faustlast_img read more
