[Trinity Classical Academy] – Students, faculty, staff, friends and family members, led by students of Trinity Classical Academy’s Chapter of Young Americans for Freedom will honor the 2,977 lives that were lost 14 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001, by placing an American flag for each loved one, first responder, rescue worker, volunteer and community resident who succumbed to the deadliest terror attack ever on U.S. soil next Friday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 a.m. on the front lawn of Trinity Classical Academy (28310 Kelly Johnson Parkway, Santa Clarita, 91355).
Students will also honor the four American officials who died in Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya with flags.
The 9/11: Never Forget Project 30-minute ceremony will include YAF chapter member presentations, Pledge of Allegiance, a moment of silence and reflection, and then everyone joining together to sing God Bless America. This marks the third year Trinity students have participated in the 9/11: Never Forget Project, which is designed to create a community of remembrance, reflection and continued awareness.
“We are so proud of these Upper School students who plan and execute this incredible tribute each year,” said Head of School, Liz Caddow. “Our entire school wholeheartedly supports the 9/11 Never Forget Project and continues to be humbled by those who died, and those who have subsequently lost their lives protecting ours.”
Since 2003, students at more than 250 schools across the country participate in the Young Americans For Freedom 9/11: Never Forget Project each year. This month marks 14 years since the tragic terror attacks in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. and is also the three-year anniversary of the attacks in Benghazi. Young America’s Foundation’s student activists understand the significance of these events to our country and hope to raise awareness about the importance of eradicating terrorism.
