EDMOND — Lt. Col. Brian E. Bart was the keynote speaker Friday for University of Central Oklahoma remembrance of the 9/11 victims.

Bart was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1995 in the U.S. Army Reserve and has since served in many different posts. He has served as a professor of military science at UCO since 2015.

After the ceremony, those in attendance planted about 3,000 American flags in the ground around Broncho Lake in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11.

Earlier in the week, UCO student volunteers cooked and served spaghetti dinners at firehouse in Edmond and Oklahoma City to thank local first responders for their daily service.
