Eighteen years ago, members of the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four planes in a coordinated terrorist attack. 2,977 people died in the attacks, including civilians, military personnel in the Pentagon and the emergency firefighters, police and medical workers who arrived at the scene.
Today, Northmont High School remembers those who lost their lives and would like to extend a sincere thank you to our local first responders who make tremendous sacrifices to protect our community. In addition to lessons focusing on the 9/11 tragedies and the way it transformed our world, sophomore American History classes will be participating in Constitution Day activities on Tuesday, Sept. 17. As part of this experience, we're inviting local civil servants who embody various civic values to speak to our students in a small group setting. The goal is to emphasize the many civic values that unite us and strengthen the fabric of our community. If you're interested in participating, please contact Cory Caudill at email@example.com or 937-832-6031.
