Alum’s Spirit Lives On Ten Years After 9/11
June 24, 2011
Father's Day weekend marked the tenth annual Cogs Classic Golf Tournament which honors popular Wall Street trader Timothy Coughlin '80, one of four members of the Stonehill community who died on 9/11.
At the event, Coughlin's wife Maura showed a tribute video that she and her children recently made. With old footage and new interviews, the video captures Tim's love of life and of his family.
In addition, the video also shows how the Coughlins have rebuilt their lives with joy and humor. It notes how his children now know their father better thanks to his many classmates, friends and family who attend the Cogs Classic and share memories with them.
A beautiful story of resilience, the video is told in their own words. To see it, visit here (Windows Media Player required).
Held on Long Island every year around Father's Day, the Cogs Classic supports the Coughlin Scholarship, which has raised $800,000 in student scholarships. The event also underwrote Coughlin Memorial Field and Scoreboard at W. B. Mason Stadium.
"We salute Tim Coughlin's many Stonehill friends who have remained so loyal to their classmate. Their solidarity has helped a family to triumph over tragedy and to give educational opportunities to a new generation of Stonehill students," said Assistant Vice President for Advancement Timothy Lawlor '81 who has been involved with the Cogs Classic since its inception.
