A community remembers 9/11

The Criminal Justice Program closes its ceremony remembering the 9/11 attacks.

It was 14 years ago today that the nation stopped in its tracks to watch the horrors unfolding in New York City, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

The Clewiston High School Criminal Justice Program remembered the 14th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in a heartfelt program in the Clewiston High School auditorium this morning.

Now an annual tradition, students, teachers, administrators and community members and officials file into the auditorium to pay homage to those who lost their lives and the heroes who answered the call to pull the wounded and dead from the wreckage and clean up the city and landmarks shattered by the attacks.
