— Founder's Day at Duke University got off to a solemn start Thursday as the school paid tribute to alumni who lost their lives in the World Trade Center attacks.

Candles were lit in memory of five Duke graduates who lost their lives in the attacks on Sept. 11.

On Wednesday, family members and friends gathered at North Carolina Central University to remembered a graduate who was killed in the World Trade Center collapse.

Harry Glenn, 38, was a Harlem native who graduated from NCCU in 1983 with a business degree.

Glenn, who lived in New Jersey and worked in the towers, has been missing since the attacks.

He is survived by his wife Sharon, who also graduated from NCCU in 1983, and their 7-year-old son Jalen.
