Warwick Academy extended an open invitation today for residents to join them for a free concert during a family evening of reflection “to remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
The invite was posted via social media this afternoon for the ‘Concert in Memory of Rhondell Tankard and those who lost their lives on 9/11”.
The concert will be held at the school on September 11, from 7pm to 8:30pm.
Proceeds will go to the Rhondelle Tankard music scholarship for a Warwick Academy student.
Three Bermudians lost their lives on that fateful day, including Saltus alumni Boyd A Gatton [1962-2001] and American Robert DW Higley II [1971-2001], and Rhondelle Tankard.
Mr Gaton, who was 38 was working on the 97th floor at his job at the Fiduciary Trust Company as the Operations Manager.
Mr Higley II, 29, was working at Aon Risk Management Services in the South Tower, having joined the company just three months prior the September 11 attack.
Rhondelle Tankard, who was 31 had only started working at the World Trade Center the day before on September 10. She also worked at Aon Insurance prior to working in New York.
