Friends and Family,
It is hard to believe that almost 19 years have passed since the horrific events of September 11th. As most Americans watched strangers desperately search for their loved ones on TV and in the newspapers, our family suffered through the unthinkable - the loss of one of our own. Our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, niece and cousin, Alisha Levin, perished on that day. A young and promising Vice President at Fuji Bank, who moved to New York from Philadelphia to build her career, she innocently went to work that day, not knowing that it would be her last.
Almost 19 years have gone by and new towers have risen where the twin towers once stood; yet we are still mourning her loss. Our family and the people that she touched in her shortened life will never be the same without her.
In her memory, we established the 'Alisha C. Levin Memorial Fund' in 2002. This Fund provides scholarships and other financial support to deserving students from Alisha's two Alma maters, Northeast High School in Philadelphia and Hofstra University in New York. We are proud to have Alisha's name, her commitment to academics, and love of the arts live on by positively impacting the lives of others.
