11 years later: Students remember September 11 attacks

The ThunderHawk staff places American flags around the Hawkeye logo to remember 9/11.

A tradition continued today at Hamilton high school – one that remembers the victims of the terrorist attacks that rocked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

While Mr. Grabinski led off the morning announcments with a reminder of what happened that fateful day that included a moment of silence , and discussion around the topic may have come up in various classrooms, one group took time out to help the community remember it as well.

The Writing for Publications class, which in interest of full disclosure, produces The ThunderHawk student newspaper, placed 50 American flags around the Hawkeye logo which greets visitors entering the school.

According to classroom teacher Mr. Kevin Weed, the tradition of placing the flags started 5 years ago on the 6th anniversary of 9/11 and was led by a group of students from the class of 2011.

While those students have graduated, Mr. Weed’s class has picked up the tradition to help ensure younger generations “Never Forget” what happened.
