On Sept. 11, 2001, Alicia lost her life along with so many other Americans in the tragic 9/11 terrorist attacks. She was a flight attendant on United Airlines Flight 175, which crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
The Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund was established in August 2002, by the Titus family and their church friends, all of whom have ties to Urbana University. It was created to carry out the legacy and spirit of Alicia’s life by sponsoring programs that promote and support a culture of peace at the University and within the community.
After losing their beloved daughter, John (Class of ’77) and Beverly (Class of ’90) have advocated for peace education in the community and at Urbana, along with the UU Student Peace Alliance. It’s John and Bev’s mission to mend that concern and create a culture of peace.
