Madison College holds 9/11 remembrance ceremony

MADISON, Wis. - Madison College honored the victims, survivors and first responders of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks with a special remembrance ceremony Wednesday morning. 

The college held the ceremony at the fire bay area of the protective service center. 

A firefighter student at Madison Area Technical College said the 9/11 attacks helped her decide her career path. 

"Learning about what happened, how it happened, why it happened, what happened after that, it just sparked that I wanted to do something to help people and some protective service," Gillian Fisher said. "Firefighter, EMS, cop, I just wanted to do something." 

During the ceremony, the college also displayed nearly 3,000 flags along with a memorial wall with the names of the victims of the attacks.
