Family shares memories of Flight 93 attendant
Family members of Lorraine Bay, one of five flight attendants aboard United Airlines Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001, will speak at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Stoystown, Somerset County, this weekend.
Ed Root and his daughter, Emily Schenkel, will participate in the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial’s Flight 93 Speaker Series at noon and 2 p.m. on June 15 and noon on June 16.
Schenkel will address the challenges she has faced as a parent in explaining the events of 9/11 to her young children.
Free and open to the public, the program will be held in the memorial’s Learning Center. Friends’ board member Sheena Baker will facilitate this month’s lecture series.
Two additional Flight 93 Speaker Series programs are planned this summer, including:
• July 27-28, National Park Service volunteers-in-parks will share their stories on volunteering at the memorial and their connection to Flight 93 National Memorial as ambassadors;
• Aug. 17 (no Sunday program), Paul McNulty, president of Grove City College, will discuss his experience as the lead prosecutor in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial and later his role as deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush.
