9/11 victim’s family discusses courageousness, selflessness with Kiski Area elementary students

The mother and sister of Welles Remy Crowther shared Welles’ story with fifth- and sixth-graders in Pennsylvania, writes R.A. Monti in Trib Live.

Welles was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks at age 24. He was an equities trader at Sandler O’Neill and Partners, on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center’s South Tower and helped evacuate several people, at the cost of his own life.

Alison Crowther now teaches young people about courage in her son’s name.

“It lies within each and every one of you to a make a difference in your world. It doesn’t have to be life-or-death decision, like Welles had to make; it could be as simple as sitting with someone at lunch or holding the door for someone,” she told the students.
