The chaplains of Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel will conduct a remembrance ceremony on Friday, Dec. 21, to honor the 270 people who died aboard Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on the same date 30 years ago. Thirty-five students studying through SU’s Division of International Programs Abroad (now SU Abroad) were lost in the tragedy. Following a brief private service, those in attendance will proceed to the Wall of Remembrance, located in front of the Hall of Languages, where a brief memorial ceremony will be offered by Hendricks Chapel Dean Brian Konkol. During the procession, the Crouse Chimes will sound 35 times.
