OSU remembers plane crash victims

STILLWATER, Okla. - The Oklahoma State University community is remembering the plane crash that killed four people, one year ago.

Women's basketball coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna, and alumni Olin and Paula Branstetter, were killed in the crash, on November 17, 2011.

On Saturday, the OSU football team held a moment of silence, before their game against Texas Tech, to honor the victims.

The team also wore decals with "4" written on them.

At 4:10 pm, the bell on top of the Edmon Low Library rang four times, as well.

A "Remember the 4" banner now hangs in the Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The Branstetter's family stopped by, after the game, to sign it.

"The family is so appreciative of everything that OSU is doing, that the OSU community is doing and that the fans are doing," said Olin and Paula's son, Jack. "We felt completely uplifted all year and especially today."

Fans will be able to sign the banner at the women's basketball game, against Weber State, on Sunday.

The game begins at 2:00 pm and admission is free.
