Geneva, Ala. (WDHN)—The morning of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Carl Max Hammond Jr. of Geneva was aboard United Airlines
Flight 175 that terrorists crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
As a child, he grew up part-time in Geneva and Huntsville. Geneva Mayor Frankie Lindsey says despite
Max being a world-renown physicist. He was still a country boy who enjoyed building and racing
cars. Lindsey says “not just a brainy bookworm. Hammond was a country boy at heart who could build a Ford Mustang bumper-to-bumper before he could drive.”
“The tragedy some 19-years-ago. Today’s high school students weren’t even born at the time.
“I learned how it greatly has impacted everyone and I love how we have this event around geneva to remind us of what happened, it should never
Be forgotten”,” says Geneva High School Senior Abbie Grace McDaniels.
