ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud State University joined others throughout the state in sounding 26 bells across campus at 9:30 this (Friday) morning, to mark a moment of silence in honor of each life that was taken at the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut a week ago.

Hear the bells from the SCSU campus:

One of the bells was for six-year-old Charlotte Bacon, the daughter of SCSU alumna Joann Hagen Bacon.  She graduated from SCSU in 1990 with a major in mass communications and a minor in political science.
