UMd. professor's calm leadership on 9/11 helped to save lives

As we honor those who've served and protected our country on this Sept. 11, we're also taking time to remember the men and women who lost their lives 21 years ago. The stories of survival from that day in 2001 are emotional. Yet, in the midst of the panic and fear, calmness defined one Maryland woman's experience -- a calmness that helped save lives. For University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business professor Elinda Kiss, 9/11 harkens back to a very long walk. She even remembers the suit she wore that day at an annual economic conference held at New York's World Trade Center. She heard the first plane and saw the second. But in that same blue suit, she knew there was no time to stand still.
