YPSILANTI (WWJ) – A 9/11 memorial event held Sunday at Pease Park features a 14-foot, 6,800-pound steel beam from the World Trade Center.

Eastern Michigan University acquired the large artifact from the New York Port Authority earlier this summer. Eastern was selected to receive it following a formal request from President Martin. A committee made up of faculty, administration and students were involved in the design of the memorial and in determining an appropriate site.

Taking part in the memorial event held by EMU were Jelani McGadney, president of EMU Student Government, EMU President Susan Martin, Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton and U.S. Rep. John Dingell.

The memorial is designed to be approachable and able to be touched by all visitors – those from Eastern’s campus and those from the community.
