9/11 remembered throughout UCPS

As the stirring melody of the National Anthem filled the Forest Hills High School gymnasium, about 1,000 students, all waving American flags, sang the Star Spangled Banner in honor of its 200th anniversary. Students and faculty also remembered the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and the terrorist attacks on America that resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people. Like many schools in Union County, Forest Hills High School commemorated the day with patriotic songs, while carrying American flags and wearing red, white and blue. In recognition of the 13th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on America, the school held a moment of silence, and students and teachers spent time talking in class about the events of the day, some sharing memories about 9/11 and its impact on America.
